molecular marker oyster mushroom.
Before infection can occur, the smuts need to undergo a successful mating to form dikaryotic hyphae (two haploid cells fuse to form a dikaryon
The end of reprogramming can be defined by morphological similarity of nuclei in dikaryon
. We give one more reason.
Formation of an extracellular lacease by Schizophyllum commune dikaryon
. Journal of Genral Microbiology, 132: 2817-2826.
This was done due to the ability of monocaryotic hyphae of some fungi to fuse (anastomose) and exchange genetic material following contact with another monokaryon or dikaryon
of the same species (Rayner and Boddy 1988, Ainsworth and Rayner 1989, Beeching et al.
colonies produced off-white aerial mycelium as a thin haze.
The infective stage of the fungus is a dikaryon
that is formed when haploid sporidia of opposite mating-type conjugate.
