Cell union in mating pairs in the ciliate Euplotes raikovi is controlled by a system of multiple mating types which are inherited with alleles codominant at the genetic locus mat and expressed via diffusible mating pheromones. The mating pheromones Er-2, Er-3, and Er-11 were purified from cells homozygous for the mat-2, mat-3, and mat-11 alleles, respectively. These pheromones are proteins of similar Mr (11,000-12,000) and acidity (pI 3.7-4.0) and are active at a concentration that varies from… Expand
