Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition)
In 2008 we published the first set of guidelines for standardizing research in autophagy. Since then, research on this topic has continued to accelerate, and many new scientists have entered theExpand

Fruiting-Body Development in Ascomycetes
Fruiting bodies are multicellular structures that are developed during the sexual life cycle of filamentous ascomycetes and protect the products of meiosis. In this review, we will provide a generalExpand

Functional Characterization of MAT1-1-Specific Mating-Type Genes in the Homothallic Ascomycete Sordaria macrospora Provides New Insights into Essential and Nonessential Sexual Regulators
ABSTRACT Mating-type genes in fungi encode regulators of mating and sexual development. Heterothallic ascomycete species require different sets of mating-type genes to control nonself-recognition andExpand

Spo76p Is a Conserved Chromosome Morphogenesis Protein that Links the Mitotic and Meiotic Programs
Spo76p is conserved and related to the fungal proteins Pds5p and BIMD and the human AS3 prostate proliferative shutoff-associated protein. Spo76p localizes to mitotic and meiotic chromosomes, exceptExpand

The pro1(+) gene from Sordaria macrospora encodes a C6 zinc finger transcription factor required for fruiting body development.
During sexual morphogenesis, the filamentous ascomycete Sordaria macrospora differentiates into multicellular fruiting bodies called perithecia. Previously it has been shown that this developmentalExpand

Two pheromone precursor genes are transcriptionally expressed in the homothallic ascomycete Sordaria macrospora
Abstract In order to analyze the involvement of pheromones in cell recognition and mating in a homothallic fungus, two putative pheromone precursor genes, named ppg1 and ppg2, were isolated from aExpand

Highly efficient generation of signal transduction knockout mutants using a fungal strain deficient in the mammalian ku70 ortholog.
Targeted gene replacement via homologous recombination is a routinely used approach to elucidate the function of unknown genes. Integration of exogenous DNA in the genomic DNA requires the action ofExpand

A WD40 Repeat Protein Regulates Fungal Cell Differentiation and Can Be Replaced Functionally by the Mammalian Homologue Striatin
ABSTRACT Fruiting body development in fungi is a complex cellular differentiation process that is controlled by more than 100 developmental genes. Mutants of the filamentous fungus SordariaExpand

Insights on the Evolution of Mycoparasitism from the Genome of Clonostachys rosea
Clonostachys rosea is a mycoparasitic fungus that can control several important plant diseases. Here, we report on the genome sequencing of C. rosea and a comparative genome analysis, in order toExpand
