  • Strains used in crosses: ESS1 = YDA579; ess1H164R = YDA582; deletion mutants are from EUROSCARF collection. Frequency in which the dead spore is a double mutant (deduced) in tetrads with 3:1 segregation for growth: ess1H164R swi4Δ = 6/8; ess1H164R swi6Δ = 16/20; ess1H164R whi3Δ = 2/6; ess1H164R whi5Δ = 0/3; and ess1H164R mbp1Δ = 3/11.
