Localization and function of the BEM46 protein in the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa. The corresponding bem46-gene has recently termed as one of the most "known unknown genes"


Experimental techniques


-   Standard molecularbiological and cloning techniques, e.g. Soutern-,

    Northern- and Westernblot, establishment of knock-down and

    over-expression transformants as well as  semi-quantitative and RT-PCR.


-   Fluorescence microscopical techniques, using different stains as well as

    GFP-fusion transformants
