  1. Groups of relevant biological processes regulated at the protein expression level from growth rates 0.1 to 0.2/h under carbon limitation are shown here. Proteins significantly upregulated or downregulated with increasing growth rate (relative fold-changes greater than 20%, 141 proteins) from iTRAQ studies were analyzed by GO studies (GO tool, SGD Term Finder [42]). Numbers of proteins obtained per biological process are included in brackets. Full lists of results, including genes significantly regulated at the protein expression level, for each biological process are provided in Additional data file 2 (Tables S19 and S20).
