Induction of hyphal branching inBipolaris sorokiniana by sodium chloride
- 17 Downloads
The hyphae ofBipolaris sorokiniana (Sacc. in Sorok) Shoemaker, a fungus belonging to the hyphomycetes, branched profusely while growing on a medium containing sodium chloride. Non-ionic osmotic compounds and other salts failed to induce branching. It appears that the Na ion of NaCl is responsible for inducing the hyphae to branch.
