Microcyclic microconidiation (microconidiation without mycelial phase) could be obtained in Neurospora crassa by treating the microconidia of the fluffy mutant at 46°C for 24–48 h on phosphate buffer and transferring them to 25°C for 96 h. The successive stages of this shortened differentiation are described with both optical and electron microscopy. Microcyclic microconidiation appears to depend upon an arrest of apical growth followed by a lateral differentiation of microconidiogenous… CONTINUE READING
