SummaryInfluences of various levels of dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO) ranging from 0.04–1.28 M on growth, sporulation and spore germination ofRhizopus arrhizus in liquid and semi-solid media were investigated. Light enhanced the inhibitory effect of DMSO on growth and sporulation in both media. Inhibition of spore germination was observed with direct treatment with DMSO. The inhibition was higher in spores obtained from cultures grown on the DMSO semi-solid media.
