Pathways of ACT2 LOH. LOH due to mitotic recombination, including crossover and gene conversion events, will have no effect on the mating type locus MT on the other arm of the chromosome; hence cells will retain both the MT+ and MT- alleles. This is also true for spontaneous mutation of the ACT2 gene. In contrast, chromosome loss will result in simultaneous LOH at both ACT2 and MT.
