Mating types and sexual development in filamentous ascomycetes.
The progress made in the molecular characterization of the mating types in several filamentous ascomycetes has allowed us to better understand their role in sexual development and has brought toExpand

The genome sequence of the model ascomycete fungus Podospora anserina
BackgroundThe dung-inhabiting ascomycete fungus Podospora anserina is a model used to study various aspects of eukaryotic and fungal biology, such as ageing, prions and sexual development.ResultsWeExpand

The Function of the Coding Sequences for the Putative Pheromone Precursors in Podospora anserina Is Restricted to Fertilization
ABSTRACT We cloned the pheromone precursor genes of Podospora anserina in order to elucidate their role in the biology of this fungus. The mfp gene encodes a 24-amino-acid polypeptide finished by theExpand

Co-expression of the mating-type genes involved in internuclear recognition is lethal in Podospora anserina.
In the heterothallic filamentous fungus Podospora anserina, four mating-type genes encoding transcriptional factors have been characterized: FPR1 in the mat+ sequence and FMR1, SMR1, and SMR2 in theExpand

Genome quality control: RIP (repeat‐induced point mutation) comes to Podospora
RIP (repeat‐induced point mutation) is a silencing process discovered in Neurospora crassa and so far clearly established only in this species as a currently occurring process. RIP actsExpand

The importomer peroxins are differentially required for peroxisome assembly and meiotic development in Podospora anserina: insights into a new peroxisome import pathway
Peroxisome biogenesis relies on two known peroxisome matrix protein import pathways that are mediated by the receptors PEX5 and PEX7. These pathways converge at the importomer, a peroxisome‐membraneExpand

Genome-Wide Gene Expression Profiling of Fertilization Competent Mycelium in Opposite Mating Types in the Heterothallic Fungus Podospora anserina
Background Mating-type loci in yeasts and ascomycotan filamentous fungi (Pezizomycotina) encode master transcriptional factors that play a critical role in sexual development. Genome-wide analyses ofExpand

A Network of HMG-box Transcription Factors Regulates Sexual Cycle in the Fungus Podospora anserina
High-mobility group (HMG) B proteins are eukaryotic DNA-binding proteins characterized by the HMG-box functional motif. These transcription factors play a pivotal role in global genomic functions andExpand

Altered mating-type identity in the fungus Podospora anserina leads to selfish nuclei, uniparental progeny, and haploid meiosis.
In wild-type crosses of the filamentous ascomycete Podospora anserina, after fertilization, only nuclei of opposite mating type can form dikaryons that undergo karyogamy and meiosis, producingExpand

Gene deletion and allelic replacement in the filamentous fungus Podospora anserina
Gene replacement via homologous recombination is a fundamental tool for the analysis of gene function. However, this event is rare in organisms like the filamentous fungus Podospora anserina. We showExpand
