I am trying to express proteins in yeast using a the Gal1 promoter) and
cannot afford to get raffinose (I tried glucose then galactose only and did
not get any induction. A friend of mine suggested to use a mixture of
3%Glycerol and 2%Ethanol. this allows for a very nice induction but the
cells grow very very slowly if at all (it takes over 72h to get an
OD600~0.6). Does anybody know why or if there is another alternative?
