Tec1 regulates pheromone-induced biofilm genes.

<p>(A) Adhesion by white cells of <i>TEC1</i> overexpressors generated in P37005, <i>ste2/ste2</i>, <i>ste4/ste4</i>, <i>cek1/cek1 cek2/cek2</i>, and <i>tec1/tec1</i> in different combinations of α-pheromone (α-ph) and doxycycline (Dox). (B) Northern analysis of gene expression upon overexpression of <i>TEC1</i> in strain P37005-<i>TETp</i>-<i>TEC1</i>. (C) Northern analysis of <i>TEC1</i> expression when the target genes <i>CSH1</i>, <i>PBR1</i>, or <i>WH11</i> are overexpressed in strains P37005-<i>TETp</i>-<i>CSH1</i>, P37005-<i>TETp</i>-<i>PBR1</i>, and P37005-<i>TETp</i>-<i>WH11</i>, respectively. (D) Northern analysis of <i>TEC1</i> expression in the target gene deletion mutants <i>csh1/csh1</i>, <i>pbr1/pbr1</i>, and <i>wh11/wh11</i> and the receptor deletion mutant <i>ste2/ste2</i>.</p>
