The effect of mating type on the transmission of a mitochondrially inherited spiramycin resistant gene was investigated in crosses between resistant strains derived from two complete tetrads and sensitive strains which shared a common nuclear genetic background (Figs. 1 and 2). The phenotype of the α mating type, irrespective of whether antibiotic resistant or sensitive, was always the more frequent class in the diploid progeny of a cross, and the polarity of transmission was always the same… CONTINUE READING
