Transfer of isolated nuclei into protoplasts ofAspergillus nidulans

  • Cs. Vágvölgyi
  • L. Ferenczy


Nuclei were isolated from protoplasts of a haploid auxotrophicAspergillus nidulans strain. Transformation of protoplasts prepared from a complementary haploid auxotrophic strain with these purified nuclei resulted in both heterokaryotic and diploid colonies. The nutritionally-complementing colonies appeared at a frequency of 5×10−7 to 10−8.
