Protoplasmic Incompatibility and Cell Lysis In

  title={Protoplasmic Incompatibility and Cell Lysis In},
  author={Jean Bernet},
In Podospora anserina, protoplasmic incompatibility (a phenomenon that prevents heterokaryon formation because of the destruction of the fused cells) can be studied in homokaryotic strains that combine nonallelic incompatibility genes or carry mutations at the lys loci. In these strains cell destruction occurs early in development and is associated with an arrest of growth.-From the self-lysing strains ZysA(1) and RI.' ( R and V are nonallelic incompatibility genes) mutations have been selected… CONTINUE READING
