Cell population growth and pheromone response. Simulation results of the multicellular model that combines cell division with mating type switching and pheromone response. Mass-doubling time Td = 232 min. (A) Exponential population growth when pheromone production and response is lacking. (B) Pheromone production and response leads to G1 arrest and reduced population growth rate.
