Blue light plays a key role as an environmental signal in the regulation of growth and development of fungi and plants. Here we demonstrate that in Neurospora crassa hyphae branch more frequently in cultures grown in light. Previous studies had identified cot-1 as a gene that controls apical hyphal cell elongation. In the cot-1 mutant, cessation of elongation is accompanied by hyperbranching. Here we demonstrate that the cot-1 gene encodes two transcript species of about 2100 nt (cot-1 (s)) and… CONTINUE READING
