Smf transporters and cadmium toxicity. Serial dilution plate assays (synthetic dextrose medium) comparing the cadmium tolerance of SMF1 and SMF2 disrupted or overexpressing strains as indicated. Wild-type (WT) cells transformed with the empty pYX212 vector served as controls for these experiments; a no-metal control is shown in the left panel.
