Abstract

The creAd‐30 mutation leading to carbon catabolite derepression in Aspergillus nidulans is a pericentric inversion, having one breakpoint within the creA gene on the left arm of chromosome I and the other breakpoint between binG and yA on the right arm. The left‐arm breakpoint alters the creA transcript. The likelihood that the inversion truncates creA centrally strengthens a previous proposal that derepression is the phenotype of loss‐of‐function mutations in creA.
