The spore wall in the smut fungus Entorrhiza has been investigated, with particular reference to layer 3. The wall is stratified into four layers, numbered 1–4 from the outside to inside of the wall. Layer 3 has a lamellated or striated organization, depending on the type of specimen preparation used for examination. In this study, thin sectioning and freeze-etching methods were used in transmission electron microscopy. Layer 3 is approximately 50 nm thick and is the narrowest layer of the wall… CONTINUE READING
