In search for genetically uniform system for the cytological and biochemical analysis of sexual morphogenesis in Schizophyllum, a dikaryon mimic, the Amut Bmut strain, was studied. The course of nuclear distribution and clamp formation was followed in germlings of the double mutant. It was found that this mutant mimics the interaction between two compatible strains. The developmental sequence leading to dikaryon formation can be precisely timed. Thus, it is suggested that this strain be used for determination of the sequential induction of the enzymatic systems operating in sexual morphogenesis.
