Neurospora crassa is a central organism in the history of twentieth-century genetics, biochemistry and molecular biology. Here, we report a high-quality draft sequence of the N. crassa genome. The approximately 40-megabase genome encodes about 10,000 protein-coding genes--more than twice as many as in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe and only(More)
The expression of the am (glutamate dehydrogenase) gene is dependent upon two upstream activating sequences, designated URSam(alpha) and URSam(beta). A heteromeric nuclear protein Am Alpha Binding protein (AAB) binds specifically to a CCAAT box within the URSam(alpha) element. AAB appears to be composed of three components. We used polyclonal antiserum(More)
We have analyzed the junctions involved in two examples of ectopic integration of plasmids containing the am+ (glutamate dehydrogenase) gene into a strain of Neurospora crassa bearing a complete deletion of the am locus. In one transformed strain a single copy of plasmid DNA had been integrated into linkage group (LG) III DNA without the loss of chromosomal(More)
