A schematic of proposed mechanisms on tolerance improvement towards C10 (shaded in light blue) and C11 (shaded in light orange) alkanes conferred by Pdr1p and Pdr3p. Pdr1p and Pdr3p improve tolerance to C10 alkane likely through reducing membrane damage (A, blue), alkane efflux (B, green), and reducing ROS production (C, orange); the tolerance to C11 alkane is improved likely through reducing C11 import due to potential membrane modifications (D, purple), as well as (B) and (C)
