Fig. S1. Inhibition of catalytic activity of a model enzyme, hexokinase, in the presence of hydrophobic substances. Enzyme assays were carried out independently in triplicate; plotted values are means, and standard deviations are shown.
Fig. S2. Inhibition of growth rates (15°C) of four xerophilic fungi: Aspergillus penicillioides FRR 2179 (◆), Eurotium amstelodami FRR 2792 (▲), JH06THH (●) and JH06GBM (△) by the hydrophobic stressors (A) benzene and (B) octanol. All treatments were carried out in triplicate, and standard deviations are shown.
