The protein and total amino acid contents of four mycelial fungal strains and one yeast were approximately the same for cultures harvested in the mid-log and early stationary growth phases. It was found that Fusarium oxysporum and Fusarium moniliforme contained approximately 30% more protein and total amino acids than Aspergillus niger. The amino acid(More)
Sclerotium formation in Sclerotium rolfsii was completely inhibited by 2-mercaptoethanol at a concentration of 2-4 mM without any adverse effect on mycelial growth. Concentrations lower than 2 mM had no effect on mycelial growth and sclerotium formation, whereas both were inhibited at concentrations higher than 4 mM. Complete inhibition of sclerotium(More)
Sclerotium rolfsii (Sacc.) is a serious plant pathogenic fungus and lacks perfect (basidial) stage in production. Protoplast fusion technology was employed to reconstruct fusants from this fungus. Two strains designated as A and R were used. Maximum protoplast yields of 3.8x10(5)/g mycelia and 2.8x10(5)/g mycelia were formed in strains A and R respectively.(More)
