The gene FRT1 has previously been shown to induce homokaryotic fruiting in transformation recipients of the basidiomycete Schizophyllum commune. In this paper, we demonstrate by gene disruption experiments that FRT1 is dispensable for dikaryotic fruiting. Nonfruiting homokaryotic FRT1 disruptant strains exhibited enhanced aerial growth of mycelia compared to wild type. Introduction of a functional FRT1 allele into the disruptant restored the wild-type colony morphology. Transcript abundance of… CONTINUE READING
