  • a Over 100 single colonies were crossed with a [rho0] strain, and diploids were selected and tested for respiratory competence. The experiment was done in triplicate. The control wild-type (wt) strain for maf1-Δ is YPH500, whereas the control for maf1-1 is T8-1D. Values for [rho] formation are shown as percentages ± standard deviations (SD).
