  • a All strains are [psi], unless otherwise noted.

  • b Strains expressing eRF3 variants were generated by transforming YDB498 with plasmids encoding Sup35p or the H348Q or R419G mutant protein and evicting pPW12.1 on 5-fluoroorotic acid plates.

  • c Weak and strong [PSI+] 74-D694 variants were characterized in the laboratory of M. Tuite (Kent, United Kingdom).
