Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The B factors of Schizophyllum commune are of 3 classes: The high recombining class I has 7 α alleles and 7 β alleles; the low recombining classes are class II with 7 α allels and probably 2β′ alleles and class III with probably 2 α′ (or also 2β′) alleles and 7 β allels. A fourth hypothetical class (α′-β′) was not found and either does not exist or is indistinguishable from class III by the tests employed. The α′ and β′ alleles differ from α and β by either (a) mutations affecting both mating specificity and recombination frequency, or (b) deletions involving most of the B region.
