  • Longevity, mycelium morphology, perithecia and germination given in Table 2 are measured as explained in Table 1. T4 and T6 refer to transformants carrying two different integrations of a su1+ ectopic copy. T1, T2, and T7 are three independent integrations of a chimeric construction of the su1 N-terminally deleted gene (see text). All these transgenes were associated with either the deletion of su1 or with the su1-25 mutation.
