  1. 1 FGSC = The Fungal Genetics Stock Center. P = accession number from the Perkins collection of Neurospora curated by FGSC. RLM = strain originally collected by R. L. Metzenberg. J = strain originally collected by D. Jacobson
  2. 2 Strain identification used in this study
  3. 3 Genetically and reproductively isolated species described in [5]
  4. 4 Heterokaryotic (n+n) strain of N. tetrasperma originally isolated from nature
  5. 5 Homokaryons are haploid (n), single mating-type, components derived from the heterokaryon
  6. 6 Homokaryons segregated by single ascospore isolation in [5]
  7. 7 The corresponding opposite mating-type homokaryon of the same heterokaryon was not available from the culture collection and the originating heterokaryon was either unknown or unavailable.
