The hemibiotrophic ascomycete Colletotrichum higginsianum is the casual agent of anthracnose disease of cruciferous plants. High efficiency transformation by Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated gene transfer has been established for this fungus. However, targeted gene mutagenesis through homologous recombination rarely occurs in C. higginsianum. We have(More)
The house musk shrew Suncus murinus (Insectivora, Soricidae) is referred to as suncus in a laboratory context. Although the capture of albino-like shrews (wild suncus) has been reported previously, albino-like strains have never been established, and the molecular basis of the character has remained elusive. We have established an OCAO mutant strain(More)
Among the naturally occurring toxins that are known to have specific inhibitory effects on type-1 and type-2A protein phosphatases (PP1 and PP2A), tautomycin (TM) is unique in that it exhibits significantly higher affinity to PP1 than to PP2A. The ratio of the dissociation constant for the PP1-TM interaction to that for the PP2A-TM interaction (the PP1/PP2A(More)
