  • a For the incipient bud site, time was measured from GFP-Cdc42p's first clustering at the incipient bud site to the start of bud emergence in wild-type cells (TRY11-7D). Fluorescence at this time was captured approximately every 5 min. The timing of GFP-Cdc42p localization at the mother-bud neck region was measured from the first clustering of GFP-Cdc42p at the mother-bud neck region to the time it appeared as two distinct bands on mother and daughter cells in wild-type cells (TRY11-7D). Time was measured from the first clustering of GFP-Cdc42p at the mother-bud neck region to the time it appeared as two distinct bands on mother and daughter cells in the bni1Δ mutant (YEF5126).
