**Figure 3.** **MR successfully increases CLS despite defective sulfur assimilation.** CLS measured under regular (blue line) and MR (orange line) conditions in wild-type (**a**), *met1Δ* (**b**), *met3Δ* (**c**), *met5Δ* (**d**), and *met10Δ* (**e**) strains. The horizontal dotted line represents 50% viability. The graph indicates mean ± SEM. Statistical p-values between median CLS in regular and MR condition were calculated using two-tailed Student’s *t*-test. (**f**) For each strain, we plotted the change in hydrogen sulfide levels (x-axis) and change in CLS (y-axis) under MR conditions against regular condition. The Pearson’s correlation coefficient (r) was observed to be 0.01.
