First, fusion of the mycelia
in pairs is highly unlikely; heterokaryon formation is not a sexual process.
The dried mycelia
and supernatants were stored in a refrigerator at -20degC.
Then fungistatic effect will occur constructing defensive hyphal barriers at the mycelial fronts to limit the advance of mycelium wherein the opposing mycelia
will eventually stop growing even after contact between the two mycelia
has been established .
of alkaloid-producing stain were ground to powder with the aid of liquid nitrogen.
During the first week the maximum mycelia
growth was recorded in corn cob (30+-0.
Growth was determined by the dry weight of mycelia
produced on the medium as adopted by  .
That infection could have been caused by either the mycelia
growing through the sample as mentioned above, or from the spores.
on the concentration of VFAs after 24 h incubation are given in Table 3.
Microscopic characters such as colour of mycelia
mat, shape of perithecia, arrangements of ascospores in the ascus were observed for morphological identification of isolated fungus.
18) The cultivations were incubated 27 [+ or -] 3[degrees]C until the mycelia
covered the Petridishes, registering the specific rate of growth (Kr) daily.
isolation was carried out according to procedure described by Bankole and Adekunle .
A known quantity of fermented broth was centrifuged at 5000 rpm for 10 min and mycelia
of all the samples were collected separately in Petri plates.
