Genetic characteristics of intratetrad mating, i.e., fusion of haploid products of one meiotic division, are considered. Upon intratetrad mating, the probability of homozygotization is lower than that upon self-fertilization, while heterozygosity at genes linked to the mating-type locus, which determines the possibility of cell fusion, is preserved. If the mating-type locus is linked to the centromere, the genome regions adjoining the centromeres of all chromosomes remain heterozygous… Expand

TLDR
This work investigates the fate of modifier alleles that alter the rate of intratetrad mating, under models of heterozygote advantage and of genetic load resulting from recurrent mutation. Expand
Extensive Divergence Between Mating-Type Chromosomes of the Anther-Smut Fungus
TLDR
Comparison of forces that may drive large-scale recombination suppression in fungi and other eukaryotes characterized by dimorphic chromosome pairs associated with sexual life cycles is encouraged. Expand
Chaos of Rearrangements in the Mating-Type Chromosomes of the Anther-Smut Fungus Microbotryum lychnidis-dioicae
TLDR
It is shown that the latest improvements of the PacBio sequencing yield assembly of the whole genome of the anther-smut fungus, Microbotryum lychnidis-dioicae, into finished chromosomes or chromosome arms, even for the repeat-rich mating-type chromosomes and centromeres, highlighting the potential of the latest breakthrough PacBio chemistry to resolve complex genome architectures.

Heterothallism in Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolates from nature: effect of HO locus on the mode of reproduction
TLDR
The hypothesis that clonal reproduction and intratetrad mating may predominate in natural yeast populations, while mother–daughter mating might not be as significant as was considered is supported. Expand
Convergent recombination cessation between mating-type genes and centromeres in selfing anther-smut fungi.
TLDR
The study shows that natural selection can repeatedly lead to similar genomic patterns and phenotypes, and that different evolutionary paths can lead to distinct yet equally beneficial responses to selection. Expand
Breaking linkage between mating compatibility factors: Tetrapolarity in Microbotryum
TLDR
In the genus Microbotryum, the first report of the breaking of linkage between two haploid self‐incompatibility factors and derivation of a tetrapolar breeding system is presented, contributing to understanding mating systems and linkage as fundamental principles of sexual life cycles. Expand
Dynamic linkage relationships to the mating‐type locus in automictic fungi of the genus Microbotryum
TLDR
A phylogeny of the MTL1 locus in Microbotryum indicates that it has become part of the nonrecombining regions of the mating‐type chromosomes in multiple independent events, and that recombination may have been subsequently restored in some cases. Expand
Mating System of the Anther Smut Fungus Microbotryum violaceum: Selfing under Heterothallism
TLDR
The origin of sex chromosomes is believed to have involved suppression of recombination around the essential sex determining genes on an ancestral autosomal pair and progressive expansion of this region of suppressed recombination through the recruitment of other sex-related factors. Expand
Low recombination rates in sexual species and sex–asex transitions
TLDR
It is shown that a yet undescribed species of brine shrimp Artemia from Kazakhstan, the closest known relative of the asexual Artemia parthenogenetica, has one of the shortest genetic linkage maps known, suggesting either no obligate crossover or crossovers concentrated at terminal positions with little effect on recombination. Expand
A global multilocus analysis of the model fungus Neurospora reveals a single recent origin of a novel genetic system.
TLDR
The evolutionary history of N. tetrasperma is estimated to be of a recent origin and that it diverged from the heterothallic species ∼1 million years ago, and a rapid diversification of lineages has occurred within the N. Tetras perma clade. Expand

Mating within the meiotic tetrad and the maintenance of genomic heterozygosity.
TLDR
A scenario where the mating system of automixis with first-division restitution is the result of feedback mechanisms to control exposure of genetic load is described, revealing a surprisingly dynamic genome that is rich in heterozygosity and where size-dimorphic autosomes are common. Expand
Intratetrad mating, heterozygosity, and the maintenance of deleterious alleles in Microbotryum violaceum (=Ustilago violacea)
TLDR
The mating system of Microbotryum violaceum provides an explanation for low variation among individuals within populations, inconsistent estimates of outcrossing rates, low levels of mating between tetrads of one diploid individual, and high frequencies of haplo-lethal alleles in natural populations. Expand
Pseudohomothallism and evolution of the mating-type chromosome in Neurospora tetrasperma.
TLDR
The suppression of recombination on the N. tetrasperma mating-type chromosome, expected to ensure a high frequency of self fertility, presents an interesting parallel with, and possible model for studying aspects of, the evolution of mammalian sex chromosomes. Expand
Theoretical Population Genetics of Mating-Type Linked Haplo-Lethal Alleles
TLDR
A theoretical model is developed that shows how haplo-lethal alleles may spread if they provide a compensatory advantage in the diploid or dikaryotic phase, for example, through increased disease transmission. Expand
Breeding systems and heterozygosity in populations of tetrad forming fungi
TLDR
The population genetic consequences of intratetrad selfing have not been worked out before and this note provides an introduction to the topic. Expand
INTRATETRAD MATING AND THE EVOLUTION OF LINKAGE RELATIONSHIPS
TLDR
Using a three‐locus deterministic model, intratetrad mating, unlike other systems of mating, allows sheltering of deleterious recessive recessive alleles even if there is only partial linkage between a mating locus and a load locus. Expand
Meiotic behavior and linkage relationships in the secondarily homothallic fungus Agaricus bisporus.
TLDR
Large differences in the vigor of homokaryotic offspring were correlated with the inheritance of certain chromosome segments and were also often associated with significant departures from Mendelian segregation ratios. Expand
[Various characteristics of gene localization in eukaryotic chromosomes. Formulation of a problem and analysis of non-random localization of mating type loci in fungi].
TLDR
Non-random localization of mating type locus can be considered as the means for conservation of heterozygosity in fungal genomes. Expand
Maintenance of Heterozygosity in a Homothallic Species of the Neurospora tetrasperma Type
TLDR
It is interesting to note that the inclusion of an A and an a nucleus in one ascospore leads to the maintenance of heterozygosity of other factors not on the same chromosome but segregating at the same time as the Aa factors. Expand
Automixis: its distribution and status
TLDR
Confusion results from a failure of many biologists writing on this subject to adequately consider the variation in life-cycles existing between major taxa and from a general failure by botanists and mycologists to distinguish between automixis and autogamous forms of self-fertilization (in which the fusing nuclei derive from different meioses).
