Application of mating type gene technology to problems in fungal biology.


In ascomycetes, the single mating type locus (MAT) controls sexual development. This locus is structurally unusual because the two alternate forms ("alleles") are completely dissimilar sequences, encoding different transcription factors, yet they occupy the same chromosomal position. Recently developed procedures allow efficient cloning of MAT genes from a… (More)
