Mutants alter “critical cell size” at START for mothers. (A) The % of budded mother cells vs. cell size (microns) is plotted: whi mutants undergo division at a “critical cell size” smaller than that of the wild type (rpl42aΔ= 5.5, mrpl49Δ= 5.5, rom2Δ= 5.6, rpl36bΔ= 5.7, yjr114wΔ= 5.7, rpl16bΔ= 5.9, cbs1Δ= 6.0, WT= 6.3). (B) The % of budded mother cells vs. cell size (microns) is plotted: large cell (uge) mutants undergo division at a “critical cell size” larger than that of the wild type (WT= 6.3, ecm9Δ= 7.0, ctr9Δ= 7.1). (C) Box plots represent size distributions (n=35-45) of mother cell populations at which they bud (**p<0.0001). Statistical differences were determined by Mann Whitney Test with p=0.05 as cutoff value.
