The effect ofmata1,matα1 andmatα2 mutations in the mating type locus on the production of the sexual agglutination substances responsible for sexual agglutination was examined. Cells carrying themata1 mutation produceda agglutination substance as efficiently as cells ofMATa. Cells carryingmatα1 showed neither α nora agglutination ability. Cells carryingmatα2 behaved just likematα1 cells at 28°C, but at 36°C, or in glycerol or acetate medium, they produceda agglutination substance, showinga… CONTINUE READING
