Sex-hormones in Neurospora crassa further studies on its biological properties
- 9 Downloads
Sexual hormones, isolated from the single strains (EmA, Ema) and cross (EmA × Ema) cultures ofNeurospora crassa have been found to restore the fertility of a completely sterile strain obtained from the “selfed” progeny of EmA. In an attempt to see the effects of different concentrations (dilutions) of the “cross-extract” on EmA and also on the cross EmA×Ema, different threshold values were indicated.
