Mating type a-1 proteins, encoded by mat-a-1 genes, determine the sexual compatibility and vegetative incompatibility with A mating types in many ascomycetes. As understood many genes involved in sexual development of fungi are under the influence of MAT genes because these genes encode their transcriptional regulators [14].
The Xylaria papulis Lloyd, was under class ascomycetes, first illustrated and described by Van der Gucht [27]; the species was collected and identified using morphology at Papua New Guinea.
The Aspergillus oryzae belongs to a completely separate group of mushrooms, ascomycetes. Using a reconstructed gene structure the more robust specimen has been genetically modified in order to enable it to produce pleuromutilin at a vastly improved rate--more than 200 times faster (2106%) than the basidomycete.

Edible plants and domestic animals were intentionally introduced, but diseases and other organisms were accidentally transferred, and many became invasive, e.g., brown rats, zebra mussels, tumbleweed (Salsola spp.; Caryophylalles: Amarantaceae), wild oat, and ascomycete microfungi (Ophiostoma spp.) responsible for Dutch elm disease.
Luminous fungi belong to the phylum Basidiomycota, and are found in tropical as well as temperate climates, always associated with hydrated substrates, with the possible exception of the ascomycete Xylaria hypoxylon (Foerster et al.
