Sclerotium-forming filamentous fungi are of great agricultural and biological interest because they can be viewed as models of simple metamorphosis. They differentiate by asexually producing sclerotia but the processes involved in sclerotial metamorphosis were poorly understood. In 1997, it was shown for the first time that the sclerotial differentiation state in Sclerotium rolfsii concurred with increasing levels of lipid peroxides. This finding prompted the development of a theory supporting… CONTINUE READING
