Striatin family proteins have been identified in animals and fungi and are considered to be scaffolding proteins. In fungi striatin orthologs have been associated with sexual development and virulence to plants. In this study, we characterized the functions and localization of the striatin ortholog, StrA, in Aspergillus nidulans. deltastrA strains showed multiple defects in conidium germination, mycelial radial growth, production of diffusible red pigment, and reduced conidiation. The most… CONTINUE READING
