Abstract

SUMMARY: Sporangium production in was inhibited by trifluoperazine (TFP) and ophiobolin A. TFP was inhibitory to a similar extent to cultures both in light and in darkness, although the stimulatory effect of calcium and the inhibitory effect of EGTA were much greater in the dark. Sporangium and oospore production in were inhibited by TFP. Thus development of both asexual and sexual reproductive structures involves a calcium/calmodulin interaction.
