The influence of light on asexual fruiting and mycelial growth of Phycomyces blakesleeanus Burgeff was studied by means of fruiting body counts and size measurements in cultures on solid media under varied incubation conditions. Five types of photoresponses were shown by ATCC Strain 8743a: (a) photoinduction of giant sporangiophores; (b) interference by light with an endogenous system that otherwise induces fruiting when the mycelium approaches the rim of the Petri dish; (c) inhibition of… CONTINUE READING
