Effects of T-DNA insertion from two different vectors on RNA levels of MAT1-1-1, PPG1 and BEM1. Comparison of G217B, UC1, and UC26 with strains with pCB301-HYG-GFP integrated at alternate sites (Alt), ALT strains with hph excised (Alt cre), or strains with pCB301-Blast integrated into the genome (G217B Blast). RNA levels of MAT1-1-1 (A), PPG1 (B), and BEM1 (C) in mycelial samples were compared by qRT-PCR. Alt samples represent the average of values obtained from triplicate samples of 4 different strains. Alt cre and G217 Blast samples represent the average of values obtained from triplicate samples of two different strains. n = 3 except 4A: UC1, n = 6; UC26, n = 4; 4B: n = 4 for G217B, UC1, and UC26. ** = p ≤ 0.01 # = below level of detection.
