Hello yeast colleagues!
Does somebody know something about the target of crystal violet (otherwise
known as gentian violet) in yeast?
Litterature generally mentions that crystal violet decreases the transmembrane
potential of mitochondria. Does anybody agree with this mechanism? Can somebody
tell me more about crystal violet?

Thanks to answer to:
