Influence of carbon, nitrogen, temperature and pH on the growth and sporulation of some Indian isolates of Colletotrichumgloeosporioides causing anthracnose disease of papaya (Carrica papaya L).
Accordingly, definite the effective environmental factors that induce asexual sporulation process in aspergilli considered the first step towards making an accurate identification.
Dead insects were collected from test arenas daily and transferred to a humid chamber to detect fungal sporulation and confirm fungus infection as the cause of death.
In general, the highest total and advanced infection prevalence, and most spores, were found in the spring and summer of the calendar year after birth, although the date of maximum detected sporulation ranged from late May to late August, depending on year.
The lack of sporulation did not permit morphologic identification, although panfungal PCR and further sequencing again revealed the presence of Inonotus spp.
The example I will use is the simple developmental program of sporulation in S.
Microbes having ability of sporulation can stay relatively long in dormant stage and are therefore preferred in the bioinfluenced cementitious systems [15].
A wide range of environmental and physiological stress signals may trigger sporulation. During the transition from vegetative state to sporulation, the transcription of spo0A (gene for sporulation transcription factor), a member of the response regulator control system, and a master regulator, is required [17].
Given that the oocysts remain in the environment after being shed [15] and that wet floors favour oocysts sporulation, infection is maintained.
Evaluation of Fungicides on Mycelia Growth Rate and Sporulation. After every two days, radial mycelial growth measurements were taken on each plate and recorded.
