Sclerotinia sclerotiorum was found to form stable heterokaryons. Auxotrophic mutants derived from six prototrophic wild-type strains were paired in all combinations on minimal media. Some combinations of auxotrophs led to the development of prototrophic strains. These prototrophic strains were demonstrated to be heterokaryons by separating the two parental nuclear types into separate thalli. Heterokaryon formation was under the control of a regulatory system that resulted in incompatibility in… CONTINUE READING
