Specific growth rates of the yeast strains expressing mutated RsXI-C1s. Growth of cells, harboring either the wild-type RsXI-C1 (control) or point mutants of RsXI-C1 (T76I, E125G, I286F, N337T, or K384E), was carried out in SX medium under aerobic condition. Growth rates were determined as described in "Methods". Error bars indicate standard deviations of biological quintuplicates. Statistical significance was determined using Student’s t test. *P < 0.05, significant difference. n.s. no significant difference
