*a*The mean ergosterol content of cells is expressed as a percentage of the wet weight of cells ± the standard deviation of three sets of experiments (33).↵

*b*The mean p value of cells (inversely proportional to membrane fluidity)± the standard deviation of three sets of experiments is shown (32, 33, 35).↵

*c*The mean OD_{527}of supernatant, for checking passive diffusion of R6G inside cells (a lower OD implies a higher concentration of R6G inside the cells), ± the standard deviation of three sets of experiments is shown (32, 33, 35).
