Growth of the pmr1-Δ and ret1-27 mutants on SD* medium supplemented with different concentrations of MnCl2.

Cell suspensions with equal densities were spotted onto corresponding media and grown for 2 days. The experiment was performed using serial dilutions of cell suspensions (S3 Fig) and a representative dilution is shown in this figure. pmr1-Δ, a subclone of the 1MA27/12/GP1 strain lacking the PMR1 containing plasmid; the PMR1, 1MA27/12/GP1 strain, ret1-27, the 64MA70QAL strain; RET1, the 64MA70QA-RET strain.
