Interaction between developmental and cell cycle regulators is required for morphogenesis in Aspergillus nidulans.


In Aspergillus nidulans, mutation of the transcriptional regulator brlA arrests formation of asexual spore-forming structures called conidiophores but does not hinder vegetative hyphal growth. During conidiophore development a 6-fold, brlA-dependent increase in the kinase activities of NIMX(cdc2) and NIMA occurs. A similar level of kinase induction was… (More)
