An Overview of the Function and Maintenance of Sexual Reproduction in Dikaryotic Fungi
Sexual reproduction likely evolved as protection from environmental stresses, specifically, to repair DNA damage, often via homologous recombination. In higher eukaryotes, meiosis and the productionExpand

Coordinate regulation of Ustilago maydis ammonium transporters and genes involved in mating and pathogenicity.
The dimorphic switch from budding to filamentous growth is an essential morphogenetic transition many fungi utilize to cause disease in the host. Although different environmental signals can induceExpand

Ustilago maydis phosphodiesterases play a role in the dimorphic switch and in pathogenicity.
Components of the cAMP (cyclic AMP) signalling cascades are conserved from fungi to humans, and are particularly important for fungal dimorphism and pathogenicity. Previous work has described twoExpand
