Next, the cross of HA1xHA2 did not proliferate. In this cross, both the haploids were MATa, therefore sexual reproduction is not possible and no proliferation is expected. The cross HB1xHA2 did proliferate. Both of these haploids could not grow on their own, however, when they were crossed they were able to proliferate. This cross contains one MATα and one MATa, thus the proliferation is caused by the complementation of their alleles.
