Mating processes in fungi are governed by mating type genes. Most (if not all) heterothallic filamentous ascomycetes have a dimictic mating system with two alleles (called idiomorphs, as they do not share any significant sequence similarity) located in a single locus (Turgeon & Yoder, 2000). One idiomorph (MAT1-2) contains a single open reading frame (ORF) encoding a regulatory protein with a DNA-binding domain of the high mobility group (HMG) type, while the other (MAT1-1) contains an ORF… CONTINUE READING
