Abstract

The effect of adding dibutyryl cyclic AMP to five species of Mucorales was tested. With and a rapid halt of apical extension and a slower rate of resumed growth were observed together with marked morphological changes, including hyphal dilation, apical swelling, septation and multiple branching. Sporangiospore development, and the mating reaction in were both inhibited; carotene pigmentation was increased. and were insensitive to dibutyryl cyclic AMP.
