Balancing selection has been inferred in diverse organisms for nonself recognition genes, including those involved in immunity, mating compatibility, and vegetative incompatibility. Although selective forces maintaining polymorphisms are known for genes involved in immunity and mating, mechanisms of balancing selection for vegetative incompatibility genes in fungi are being debated. We hypothesized that allorecognition and its consequent inhibition of virus transmission contribute to the… CONTINUE READING
