Analysis of apoptotic markers in cells treated with acetic acid. Wt and gup 1∆ mutant cells were exposed to 160 mM acetic acid for 180 min. (A) Graphic representation of the percentage of cells displaying positive PI staining. (B) Phosphatidylserine externalization assessed by cytometric analysis of Annexin V labelling. Graphic representation of the percentage of cells displaying Ann V (+)/PI (−) (black bars), Ann V(+)/PI (+) (grey bars) and Ann V(−)/PI (+) (white bars). (C) Representative photos of DiOC6 staining untreated cells and cells after 180 min at acetic acid treatment. (D) Representative photos of DAPI staining untreated cells and after 180 min acetic acid treatment. For flow cytometry and fluorescence microscopy assays a minimum of 35,000 and 300 cells were counted, respectively. Data represent mean ± SD of 3 independent experiments.
