We analysed the fatty acid and sterol compositions of various Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains with ethanol tolerance varying from 4% to 12% (v/v) ethanol and at different concentrations of ethanol. The results we obtained agree with the existence of a relationship between membrane fluidity and ethanol tolerance but they do not support a direct role of unsaturated fatty acids in this tolerance.
