A strain ofFusarium oxysporum tolerated copper in the growth medium at concentrations up to 600 mg/L. The optimum growth was obtained at 200 mg Cu/L. The mycelium acquired a blue color in the presence of copper. The copper content of isolated cell walls obtained from mycelium grown in the presence of 600 mg Cu/L was 1.5 times higher than that of cell walls obtained from mycelium grown at 200 mg Cu/L and it contained 2.2 and 3.3% copper at 200 and 600 mg Cu/L, respectively. The amount of protein… CONTINUE READING
