  • Coprinellus congregatus, known as an inky cap, is autolysed into ink soon after the maturation of the mushrooms. Electron microscopy was used to examine the ultrastructural changes associated with the autolysis as an initial step to understand the role of hydrolytic enzymes in this process. During the early stages of maturation of the mushrooms, most of cytoplasm of hymenial and subhymenial tissues seemed to be transported to the developing basidiospores. The depletion of cytoplasm within the… CONTINUE READING
