  • Average length and diameter measurements for cells with indicated genotype and the given number of nuclei are shown. SD, standard deviation. Measurements are not shown (N/A) if the strain did not arrest with a significant number of cells with the indicated number of nuclei. At least 100 cells were counted for each strain.
