Relative gene expression levels under the regulation of Pdr transcription factors in the presence of C10 and C11 alkanes. In the induction medium containing 0.5 g/l galactose, BYL13 + Pdr1mt1 + Pdr3mt cells were exposed to 1 % C10 alkane (PDR1mt1 + PDR3mt + C10), and BYL13 + Pdr3wt cells were exposed to 5 % C11 alkane (PDR3wt + C11). The expression levels of genes at 24 h were normalized to those in controls (BYL13 + pESC-Ura + C10, BYL13 + pESC-Ura + C11) and the reference gene UBC6. Error bars SD from three biological replicates
