Sex specificity is observed in the mating types of the fungus Mucor mucedo with respect to the production of 4-hydroxy methyltrisporates (plus mating type) and trisporins (minus mating type), and in the conversion of these metabolites to trisporic acids by the mating partner. These compounds induce zygophores on the opposite mating type only.
