White collar (wc) mutants of Neurospora crassa are thought to be regulatory mutants blocked in the photoinduction of carotenogenesis. Eight new wc mutants have been isolated after UV mutagenesis; their morphology and linear growth rate are not altered, although blue light-induced carotenogenesis is completely blocked. All of the wc mutations fall into two complementation groups corresponding to the already-known wcI and wc-2 loci. It is shown that the wc mutations impair another blue light… CONTINUE READING
