Anastomoses and nuclear condition in Cephalosporium coccorum petch

  • U. P. Singh


Nuclear condition and formation of anastomoses inC. coccorumPetch have been reported. Preliminary study on the nuclear condition shows that the vegetative mycelium and conidia are uninucleate. Anastomoses in mycelium and conidia are discernible. Hyphal fusion through anastomosing bridges and nuclear migration through them show the possibility of heterokaryosis in the organism. Nutrient free medium is suitable for the development of anastomoses both in mycelium as well as in conidia.
