Abstract

Fusariumverticillioidescausesearrotdiseaseinmaizeanditscontaminationwithfumonisins, mycotoxinsharmfulforhumansandlivestock. Lipids,andtheiroxidizedforms,maydrivethefateof thisdisease. Inapreviousstudy,wehaveexploredtheroleofoxylipinsinthisinteractionbydeleting by standard transformation procedures a linoleate diol synthase-coding gene, lds1, in F. verticillioides. A profound phenotypic diversity in the mutants generated has prompted us to investigate more deeply the whole genome of two lds1-deleted strains. Bioinformatics analyses pinpoint significant differencesinthegenomesequencesemergedbetweenthewildtypeandthelds1-mutantsfurtherthan those trivially attributable to the deletion of the lds1 locus, such as single nucleotide polymorphisms, small deletion/insertion polymorphisms and structural variations. Results suggest that the effect of a (theoretically) punctual transformation event might have enhanced the natural mechanisms of genomicvariabilityandthattransformationpractices,commonlyusedinthereversegeneticsoffungi, may potentially be responsible for unexpected, stochastic and henceforth off-target rearrangements throughout the genome.
