Pheromone expression reveals putative mechanism of unisexuality in a saprobic ascomycete fungus
TLDR
The main finding was that H. omanensis displayed mating-type dependent expression of the a- and α-pheromones, in contrast to H. moniliformis where both pheromones were co-expressed during vegetative growth and sexual development, allowing for self-fertility in the absence of other key mating genes.
Genetic Networks That Govern Sexual Reproduction in the Pezizomycotina
TLDR
This review provides an overview of the known genetic networks and pathways that are involved in each major stage of the sexual cycle in filamentous ascomycete fungi.
Genomic characterization of mating type loci and mating type distribution in two apparently asexual plantation tree pathogens
The data that support the findings of this study are openly available in GenBank at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genbank, genome accession numbers VCMR00000000 and VCMQ00000000, MAT locus accession
A plant pathology perspective of fungal genome sequencing
TLDR
This mini-review aims to provide an analysis of the plant pathogenic fungi for which genome sequences are publically available, to assess their general genome characteristics, and to consider how genomics has impacted plant pathology.

Panmixia defines the genetic diversity of a unique arthropod-dispersed fungus specific to Protea flowers
TLDR
The lack of genetic cohesion between individuals from a single P. repens tree suggests that K. proteae dispersal does not primarily occur over short distances via mites as hypothesized, but rather that long-distance dispersal by beetles plays an important part in the biology of these intriguing fungi.

Evidence for Sexuality in the Opportunistic Fungal Pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus
Unequal Recombination and Evolution of the Mating-Type (MAT) Loci in the Pathogenic Fungus Grosmannia clavigera and Relatives
TLDR
All members of the Ophiostomatales studied here including those that were previously deemed asexual have the potential to reproduce sexually, and this ability can potentially increase genetic variability and can enhance fitness in new, ecological niches.
DNA Loss at the Ceratocystis fimbriata Mating Locus Results in Self-Sterility
TLDR
This study considered the molecular nature of uni-directional mating type switching in the type species of Ceratocystis, C. fimbriata, and found that a 3581 base pair region had been completely deleted from the MAT locus, resulting in the permanent loss of self-fertility.
Mating types and sexual development in filamentous ascomycetes.
TLDR
Diversity of mating systems, still more apparent if the yeasts and the basidiomycetes are taken into account, clearly shows that no single species can serve as a universal mating-type model.
Unidirectional evolutionary transitions in fungal mating systems and the role of transposable elements.
TLDR
A heterothallic ancestor for the model genus Neurospora is ascertain, confirming the prediction of the dead-end theory on unidirectional transitions toward selfing and evidence for two genetic mechanisms allowing these shifts: translocation and unequal crossover is presented.
Mating-type loci of heterothallic Diaporthe spp.: homologous genes are present in opposite mating-types
TLDR
The structure of MAT loci of Diaporthe W- and G-types is distinct from that in other heterothallic filamentous ascomycetes, which have dissimilar gene structure in opposite mating-type loci, and is informative to discussing the evolutionary history and function of mating- types of Sordariomycete fungi.
Mating-Type Structure, Evolution, and Function in Euascomycetes
TLDR
The analysis of the evolution of mating types is at the beginning, focusing first on the evolutionary relationship between self-compatible and self-incompatible species from the same genus and on the target genes of the mating-type transcription factors.
