Fungal fruiting body size and form are influenced by the ecology of the species, including diverse environmental stimuli. Accordingly, nutritional resources available to the fungus during development can be vital to successful production of fruiting bodies. To investigate the effect of nutrition, perithecial development of Neurospora crassa was induced on two different media, a chemically sparsely nutritive Synthetic Crossing Medium (SCM) and a natural Carrot Agar (CA). Protoperithecia were… Expand
Metabolism and Development during Conidial Germination in Response to a Carbon-Nitrogen-Rich Synthetic or a Natural Source of Nutrition in Neurospora crassa
TLDR
Conidial germination and the adaptive life history decision-making underlying these two modes of reproduction are comprehensively investigated, and transcription of Neurospora crassa germinating is profiled on two media: synthetic Bird medium, designed to promote asexual reproduction; and a natural maple sap medium, on which both asexual and sexual reproduction manifest.

Global Gene Expression and Focused Knockout Analysis Reveals Genes Associated with Fungal Fruiting Body Development in Neurospora crassa
TLDR
It was found that functionally unclassified proteins accounted for most upregulated genes, whereas downregulated genes were enriched for diverse functions, and genes associated with developmental traits exhibited stage-specific peaks of expression. Expand

Gene Expression Differences among Three Neurospora Species Reveal Genes Required for Sexual Reproduction in Neurospora crassa
TLDR
The results provide insight into the genetic basis of Neurospora sexual reproduction, which is also of great importance with regard to other multicellular ascomycetes, including perithecium-forming pathogens, such as Claviceps purpurea, Ophiostoma ulmi, and Glomerella graminicola. Expand
Combining laser microdissection and RNA-seq to chart the transcriptional landscape of fungal development
BackgroundDuring sexual development, filamentous ascomycetes form complex, three-dimensional fruiting bodies for the protection and dispersal of sexual spores. Fruiting bodies contain a number ofExpand
The Zn(II)2Cys6-Type Transcription Factor ADA-6 Regulates Conidiation, Sexual Development, and Oxidative Stress Response in Neurospora crassa
TLDR
In both conidiation and the sexual development process,ADA-6 regulates the transcription of cat-3 and other genes participating in reactive oxygen species production according to RNA-seq data, indicating a role of ADA-6 in oxidative stress response. Expand

Temporal and Spatial Regulation of Gene Expression During Asexual Development of Neurospora crassa
TLDR
Gene expression patterns during asexual development suggested that cAMP signaling plays a critical role in the transition from aerial growth to proconidial chain formation, and a deletion of the gene encoding a high-affinity cAMP phosphodiesterase was characterized. Expand
