In every single strain, the vast majority (on typical 86.3 ) in the SNP positions remained heterozygous as within the parental strain. Having said that, a substantial fraction (on typical 13.7 ) of SNP positions are homozygous for either parental origin (Fig 2, S4 Table), demonstrating that the RTG strains are recombined. Title Loaded From File Remarkably, the total level of polymorphisms exhibiting LOH varies from 15.2 to 27.eight between the RTG strains, demonstrating that the RTG approach generates a higher degree of genetic diversity.Mother and daughter RTG pairs exhibit complementary genotypesNext, we analyzed the segregation at all SNP positions in the 15 pairs of mother-daughter RTG strains. Since the RTG strains remained diploid, the genotyping of RTG pairs provides tetradlike facts regarding the segregation pattern with the 4 chromatids derived from of a single meiotic cell that underwent RTG. On typical, we observed that for 98.6 from the SNPPLOS Genetics | DOI:10.1371/journal.pgen.February 1,6 /Recombination upon Reversion of MeiosisFig two. Genome-wide genotype from the six RTG strains obtained upon arginine prototroph choice. The relative frequency on the 3 genotypes (homozygous S288c in red, homozygous SK1 in blue and heterozygous S288c/SK1 in grey) is indicated within the legend boxes. doi:10.1371/journal.pgen.1005781.gpositions, the genetic data segregated 2:two in mother and daughter RTG pairs. Amongst them, 89.two carry a heterozygous genotype in each mother-daughter cells, because the parent diploid. Conversely, ten.eight of the SNP positions segregating as two:two carry a homozygous genotype with opposite parental alleles within the mother and daughter cells (S8 Fig and S4 Table). This is exemplified in Fig three in which the genotype from the mother strain (RTG11-M) consists of 16.three of homozygous SNP positions, with 10.three from S288c and 6 from SK1, although the genotype of your daughter strain (RTG11-D), includes 16.two of homozygous SNP positions, but with all the reverse percentage of parental alleles: five.7 S288c and ten.3 SK1. The homozygous SNP positions exhibiting a two:2 segregation pattern, grouped as tracts with reciprocal genotypes, correspond to LOH events resulting from reciprocal exchanges in between non-sister chromatids. Thus, the meiotic cell that exits from meiosis (i.e. the mother cell) inherits two non-sister chromatids as well as the bud (i.e. the daughter cell) inherits the other two non-sister chromatids, as anticipated from a prosperous re-entry into mitosis in the absence of DNA replication. The nonsister chromatids are frequently but not often recombined. As observed for the chosen RTG strains (Strategy 1, see Fig 1), the absolute frequency of acquired homozygosity is very distinct from one particular RTG pair to another. Within this dataset of 15 RTG pairs, we observed 136 reciprocal LOH tracts (rLOH) (S5 and S6 Tables), having a wide variation, from 1 to 34 tracts per RTG pair.PLOS Genetics | DOI:10.1371/journal.pgen.February 1,7 /Recombination upon Reversion of MeiosisFig three.
