Assessment of yeast cell integrity by TEM. Lyophilized inactivated yeast (control) or YEOO were rehydrated in water at 4.4% for 30 min before fixation and subsequent imaging. ac Inactivated yeast (control), d-f YEOO. Control yeast shows dividing cells (dc), not present in YEOO. Panels depicting YEOO show the widespread but uneven loading of the orange oil (eo). The cell wall (cw) from the control and YEOO are intact and unaffected by essential oil. Magnification: ×8000 (a, d); ×15,000 (b, e); ×30,000 (c, f).
