Abstract

INTRASPECIFIC and interspecific transfer of nuclear genes of fungi has recently been achieved by fusion of protoplasts1-5. We describe here the transfer of mitochondrial genome using the protoplast fusion technique. The experiments were carried out with strains of identical mating-type, so we also report successful complementation of auxotrophic yeast cells of the same mating-type after protoplast fusion.
