The vegetative growth initiated by the germination of conidiospores which lead to the formation of tubular hyphae that grow and branch to form mycelium.
This pathogenesis is consistent with the preponderance of the fungal hyphae and conidiospores on the abdominal air sacs rather than the lungs in this case.
Mould colony was white cottony initially and on maturation centre converted to yellowish orange due to conidiospores. Presence of ochratoxin A was detected by TLC on the basis of greenish blue fluorescence under ultraviolet light.
Conidiospores are unprotected spores formed by mitosis at the tips of hyphae, and sporangiospores are spores produced within a sac called a sporangium.
These water-soluble mycotoxins occur in the outer plasmalemma surface and the inner wall layers of conidiospores (Gregory et al.
The fungus was successfully isolated from the gills and surface lesions on plates of Sabouraud dextrose agar, on which it produced an abundant cotton-wool type of mycelium, with yellowish or purplish-colored areas in the mycelium; conidiospores with oblong or ovoid septate macroconidia were produced, and served to confirm the diagnosis as Fusarium sp.
It has been constructed by a combination of low-dose UV induction of strain N402 (one induction for each marker) and mitotic recombination by inducing segregation of spontaneously arising diploid conidiospores isolated from a heterokaryon (e.g., Debets et al.
