  • a Bud scars were visualized using Calcofluor as described in Materials and Methods. Only cells with three of more scars were counted. More than 200 cells were counted for each strain.

  • b ND, not determined. Accurate counts could not be determined due to diffuse chitin staining and abnormal cell morphologies
