Thirty single basidiospore isolates (SBIs) obtained from four field isolates of the basidiomycete fungus Thanatephorus cucumeris AG 2-2 IV were examined for heterokaryon formation. SBIs of three of four field isolates (Rh509, 92155 and R94) did not produce a tuft of mycelium in the hyphal interaction zone between paired isolates on 2% charcoal agar. Field isolates Rh509, 92155 and R94 indicated no death of interacting mycelium with their progenies on glass slide and microscopic examination… CONTINUE READING
