21st Century Guidebook to Fungi
TLDR
This uniquely modern textbook gives students an appreciation of fungi both at the organism level and in the context of wider biology, helping students to appreciate fungi as critical components of wider ecosystems. Expand
Mathematical modelling of morphogenesis in fungi: spatial organization of the gravitropic response in the mushroom stem of Coprinus cinereus.
TLDR
It was observed that base-pinned stems first bent from the apex, but later the curvature of this part decreased, and in the late stages the apex became nearly completely straight again, and a suitable mathematical model based on these new data was suggested. Expand
Spatial organization of the gravitropic response in plants: applicability of the revised local curvature distribution model to Triticum aestivum coleoptiles.
TLDR
The revised local curvature distribution model was found to produce accurate simulations of the gravitropic reaction of wheat (Triticum aestivum) coleoptiles and Coprinus mushroom stems and it is demonstrated that a single model, depending on the values given to its parameters, is able to simulate the spatial organization.

Simple staining detects ultrastructural and biochemical differentiation of vegetative hyphae and fruit body initials in colonies of Pleurotus pulmonarius
Aims:  To know the ultrastructural and biochemical differences of vegetative hyphae and fruit body initials in colonies of Pleurotus pulmonarius.
Activities of some Enzymes Involved in Metabolism of Carbohydrate during Sporophore Development in Coprinus cinereus
Summary: Measurements of the specific activities of representative enzymes of the pentose phosphate cycle, Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas (EMP) pathway and the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle in CoprinusExpand
Extracellular superoxide production by Enterococcus faecalis requires demethylmenaquinone and is attenuated by functional terminal quinol oxidases
TLDR
A rat model of intestinal colonization demonstrated that conditions exist in the mammalian intestinal tract that permit a mode of respiration for E. faecalis that results in the formation of hydroxyl radical, and identified and characterize the mechanism by which E. Faecalis generates extracellular free radicals. Expand
Gravimorphogenesis in agarics.
TLDR
Application of a variety of metabolic inhibitors indicates that the secondary messenger calcium is also involved in regulating the growth differentials of gravimorphogenesis but that gravity perception is unaffected by inhibitors of calcium signalling. Expand
Essential Fungal Genetics
TLDR
This chapter discusses the genetics of fungal differentiation and morphogenesis, systematics, phylogeny and evolution, and the role of recombination in this evolution. Expand
Mathematical modelling of morphogenesis in fungi: a key role for curvature compensation ('autotropism') in the local curvature distribution model.
TLDR
The revised local curvature distribution model promises to be a predictive tool in the further analysis of gravitropism in mushrooms and has the virtue of operating well outside the experimental data set used in its derivation. Expand
EFFECTS OF HEXOSE ANALOGUES ON FUNGI: MECHANISMS OF INGIBITION AND OF RESISTANCE
TLDR
There are indications that sorbose, perhaps by interfering with cell wall structure, affects hyphal morphogenesis and that this effect may be magnified into a macroscopic change in the characteristics of the colony during growth on solid medium by secondary environmental effects. Expand
