Incompatibility and nuclear migration



Nuclear migration in fungi is closely associated with both heteroka-ryosis and sexual reproduction. Formation of heterokaryons can be enhanced by nuclear migration; the control of breeding can restrict migration. As this symposium bears witness, much effort is now aimed toward understanding how incompatibility genes regulate migration, heterokaryon formation, and breeding. The investigation of nuclear migration has developed rather slowly since its initiation by Buller (1931), and although substantial progress has been made, much obviously remains to be done.
