Fig. 5

Neutral lipid content of the BY and AWRI lineages after backcrossing. The figure shows the frequency distribution of the fluorescence intensity of Nile Red, which correlates with the NL content, of the F1 generation (upper panel), the F7 generation of the BY lineage (middle panel) and the F7 generation of the AWRI lineage (lower panel). The FI of the segregants was normalized to the value of the parental strain BY4741 and according to the log2 value of the normalized intensity the segregants were distributed into 100 intervals. Dotted lines denote some important classes: line a (44th class; log2(ratio of [FI]) = 0) – segregants with the same FI as in the BY4741 parental strain; line b (54th class; log2(ratio of [FI]) = 0.37) – the average class of the F1 generation; line c (55th class; log2(ratio of [FI]) = 0.40) – the average class of the F7 generation of the BY lineage; line d (62nd class; log2(ratio of [FI]) = 0.66) – segregants with the same FI content as in the AWRI1631 parental strain; line e (66th class; log2(ratio of [FI]) = 0.81) – the average class of the F7 generation of the AWRI lineage
