D, E: Chlamydospores
--CL, macroconidia--MA and monophialides--MF, obtained in MALT 2%.
Four-kilo pots were loaded to 1/3 of all with sterilized soil which was infested by chlamydospores
of Fom (race 1-2) in top sections with a combination of sterile sand-soil (1:2 v/v).
Isolates which produced chlamydospores
on rice and corn meal agar were 28 (47%) in which two were not identified as C.
On MEA media, fungi presented highly dispersed micelial growth and exhibited very limited chlamydospore
and conidia formation (Table 5).
were hyaline and spherical, measured 4.
albicans are typically identified by their ability to form germ tubes (Germ Tube Test) or single terminal chlamydospores
(In Dalmau Plate Technique) under the appropriate conditions.
Factors influencing germination of chlamydospores
of rice kernel smut.
Induction of traps by Ostertagia ostertagi larvae, chlamydospore
production and growth rate in the nematode-trapping fungus Duddingtonia flagrans.
All yeast isolates were initially identified by germ tube and chlamydospore
formation as C.
Microscopic observations were recorded for microconidia, macroconidia and chlamydospore
formation after 15 days of inoculation.
The Candida isolates were further speciated by germ tube test, chlamydospore
formation on corn meal agar, urease test and inoculation onto chromogenic medium.
Shapes of macroconidia and microconidia, the morphology of conidiogenous cells, the production of chlamydospore
, and the growth of culture, all isolates were identified as F.
