Dear all,

I have noticed that in some cases when S. cerevisae is grown in shaker  
flasks in order to express membrane proteins the shaking is done at  
quite slow speed (130-160 rpm). Has anyone any kind of clue why it is  
so ?

Could it have something to do with inhibiting the formation of foam ?  
If so does anyone know if antifoaming agents are detrimental for  
membrane protein production.

Thanks already beforehand.

-Juho
