Apothecial development is the multicellular, sexual reproduction phase in the developmental life cycle of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. This development begins within the sclerotium, a compact aggregation of vegetative hyphae contained within a melanized rind layer. Upon germination from the sclerotium, the apothecial stipe requires exposure to UV-A wavelengths of light to develop a fertile disc. We have identified a gene, cry1 from S. sclerotiorum that is most closely related to photolyase… CONTINUE READING
