Subject: breaking yeast



 I am trying to break open an industrialaneuploid yeast strain for enzyme
 assays.  This strain seem to much prefer remaining intact.  I tried twice
 through a French Press at 15,000psi and got only ~50% breakage or less.  I was
 thinking of going to glass beads but am worried about inactivating the enzyme.
 I would appreciate any suggestions.  Thanks

 Susan Bromberg
