The heterothallic sugarbeet pathogen Cercospora beticola contains exon fragments of both MAT genes that are homogenized by concerted evolution.

Fungal Genet Biol 2014 Jan 8;62:43-54. Epub 2013 Nov 8.

Department of Plant Pathology, North Dakota State University, Fargo, ND, United States.

Dothideomycetes is one of the most ecologically diverse and economically important classes of fungi. Sexual reproduction in this group is governed by mating type (MAT) genes at the MAT1 locus. Self-sterile (heterothallic) species contain one of two genes at MAT1 (MAT1-1-1 or MAT1-2-1) and only isolates of opposite mating type are sexually compatible. Read More

A circadian rhythm regulating hyphal melanization in Cercospora kikuchii.

Mycologia 2010 Nov-Dec;102(6):1221-8. Epub 2010 Jul 13.

Department of Plant Pathology, University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture, Fayetteville, Arkansas 72701, USA.

Many metabolic and developmental processes in fungi are controlled by biological rhythms. Circadian rhythms approximate a daily (24 h) cycle and have been thoroughly studied in the model fungus, Neurospora crassa. However relatively few examples of true circadian rhythms have been documented among other filamentous fungi. Read More

Mating type gene analysis in apparently asexual Cercospora species is suggestive of cryptic sex.

Fungal Genet Biol 2006 Dec 12;43(12):813-25. Epub 2006 Jul 12.

Centraalbureau voor Schimmelcultures, Fungal Biodiversity Centre, Uppsalalaan 8, Utrecht, The Netherlands; Laboratory of Phytopathology, Wageningen University, Binnenhaven 5, Wageningen, The Netherlands.

The genus Cercospora consists of numerous important, apparently asexual plant pathogens. We designed degenerate primers from homologous sequences in related species to amplify part of the C. apii, C. Read More

Sugarbeet leaf spot disease (Cercospora beticola Sacc.)dagger.

Mol Plant Pathol 2004 May;5(3):157-66

United States Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service, Northern Crop Science Laboratory, Fargo, ND 58105, USA.

Unlabelled: SUMMARY Leaf spot disease caused by Cercospora beticola Sacc. is the most destructive foliar pathogen of sugarbeet worldwide. In addition to reducing yield and quality of sugarbeet, the control of leaf spot disease by extensive fungicide application incurs added costs to producers and repeatedly has selected for fungicide-tolerant C.
