RAPD discrimination of Agaricus bisporus mushroom cultivars
TLDR
RAPD analyses can assist mushroom strain identification and could play a role in the protection of novel cultivars, many of which appear to be essentially derived varieties from two original hybrid cultivars. Expand
A developmental variant of Agaricus bisporus
TLDR
Two isolates from a single basidium have been found which readily produce fruit-body primordia in axenic culture on both complex and defined media, indicating that the structures formed are directly comparable to the initial stages of normal sporophore development. Expand
Sexuality and Genetic Identity in theAgaricus Section Arvenses
TLDR
It is concluded that species from the section Arvenses have versatile unifactorial heterothallic life cycles that permit both interbreeding and homokaryotic fruiting and are part of a complex of interrelated species. Expand
RAPD characterisation of heterogeneity in spore progenies and sexuality in the genus Agaricus
TLDR
Heterothallism in the field mushroom was confirmed by RAPD analysis of putative matings; the first time A. campestris heterokaryons have been constructed andogeneity in RAPD profiles, absence of matings and self-fertility of single spores shows that A. subfloccosus is homothallic. Expand
DNA polymorphisms in commercial and wild strains of the cultivated mushroom, Agaricus bisporus
TLDR
It is suggested that RFLPs could form a basis for genetic finger-printing and subsequent strain protection in A. bisporus and have great potential in the development of the genetics and breeding of this commercially important species. Expand
Variation in morphology, growth and fructification of isolates in the Agaricus subfloccosus complex
TLDR
There were significant differences in basidiome yield and mycelial extension growth rate between different sources of the A. subfloccosus W4 isolates, but the two parameters were not correlated. Expand
Genetics of secondarily homothallic basidiomycetes
TLDR
Random nuclear migration in secondarily homothallic basidiomycetes favours heteroallelism and provides a simple explanation for the regularly observed preponderance of isolates heteroallelic for mating-type. Expand
Production and evaluation of fungicide resistant mutants in the cultivated mushroom Agaricus bisporus
TLDR
Stable phenotypic resistance was induced in single strains to both benodanil and tridemorph and in two different strains to carboxin, and all mutants showed enhanced in vitro tolerance to specific fungicides when compared with the parental strain. Expand
