We have previously defined four single-gene mutations, con1, con2, con4, and con7, that control various stages of spore morphogenesis in the rice blast fungus. To delineate the developmental pathway of spore morphogenesis, we investigated the interactions among these morphogenetic genes by generating strains with double mutations via transformation-mediated gene disruption. Plasmids containing portions of the inactivated CON4 and CON7 genes were introduced into strains harboring single mutation… CONTINUE READING
