Lipid composition of the mucoraceous fungus Blakeslea trispora under lycopene formation-stimulating conditions
Stimulation of lycopene synthesis in the mycelium of the mucoraceous fungus Blakeslea trispora was accompanied by major changes in its lipid composition, which resulted in the desaturation degree of fatty acids drastically increased against the background of a decrease in that of the neutral lipids.

Changes in Lipid Composition and Carbohydrate Composition of Aspergillus niger Conidia during Germination
Data on the lipid composition and carbohydrate composition of Aspergillus niger conidia make it possible to characterize the individual germination stages and differentiate between the conidiaExpand
Thermotolerance in Fungi: The Role of Heat Shock Proteins and Trehalose
This review analyses experimental data obtained with the use of mutant fungal strains and shows differences in the thermoprotective functions of trehalose and heat shock proteins in relation to cell membranes and macromolecules. Expand
The effect of different heat influences on composition of membrane lipids and cytosol carbohydrates in mycelial fungi
Comparison of the changes in the composition of the membrane lipids and soluble cytosol carbohydrates caused by two types of heat influence revealed fundamental differences in the stress response of fungal cells, confirming the hypothesis of membrane stabilization by heat-protecting compounds.

Peculiarities of Exogenous Dormancy of Aspergillus nigerConidia
The exogenous dormancy of A. nigerconidia resembles the pattern of metabolism characteristic of vegetative cells during the idiophase, according to the current classification of the types of cell metabolism arrest. Expand
Germination of Basidiospores of Agaricus bisporus
The data obtained suggested an endogenous dormancy of A. bisporus basidiospores differing from zygospores of Mucorales, which is similar to that of other agar-based fungi. Expand
Developmental change of the composition and content of the chitin-glucan complex in the fungus Aspergillus niger
It is suggested that cell wall structural polysaccharides are involved in biochemical adaptation to adverse factors in Aspergillus niger. Expand
Fungal lycopene: The biotechnology of its production and prospects for its application in medicine
Its prospective use in the therapy of prostate cancers is discussed and data are presented concerning the medically important properties of lycopene and the drug Mycolycopene prepared on its basis. Expand
Trisporoids under the stimulation of carotenogenesis in Blakeslea trispora
The aggregate findings indicate that both carotenogenesis stimulators inhibit the synthesis of trisporic acids, i.e., their action is not mediated by stimulation oftrisporoid synthesis. Expand
