In this study, we tested a number of defined and undefined compounds in comparison with yeastolate in Sf-9 insect cell culture including a group of B vitamins and a series of purines and pyrimidines. Yeastolate promoted the cell growth appreciably, increasing the maximum cell density by more than 60%. Vitamins and purines, which are considered as the major constituents of yeastolate, are not responsible for its growth-promoting effect.
