Little work has been done with zygomycetes and an extensive search of the literature revealed no protocols for removing Pilobolus sporangiospore cell walls.
While the chemical nature of Pilobolus sporangiospore cell walls has not been reported, it is widely assumed that, as with other zygomycetes, they are comprised of some combination of chitin and/or chitosan.
DNA was extracted from the sporangiospores using techniques described previously (Foos et al.
Fungal isolates were readily identified by their characteristic morphology such as shape, size, colony morphology, nature of conidiophores, sporangiospores, spores.
The isolated bacterial strains were identified by using standard biochemical tests and fungal strains were by macroscopic observation of fungal colonies and microscopic identification of conidia and sporangiospores in Lactophenol Cotton Blue staining method (15,16).
Spherules filled with round fungal endospores and scattered individual sporangiospores of coccidioides were identified adjacent to areas of placental infarction (Figures 2 and 3).
