New mutations that suppress mating-type vegetative incompatibility in Neurospora crassa.


The mating-type locus in the ascomycete Neurospora crassa functions as a vegetative-incompatibility locus during asexual growth such that A+a heterokaryons and A/a partial diploids are inhibited in their growth. In this study, we sought mutations that suppress mating-type associated vegetative incompatibility by using A/a partial diploids. Mutants were… (More)
