Abstract

SUMMARY: Spicules morphologically similar to those present on the spores of invest the spores of several other species. Depsipeptides are quantitatively removed from dried mycelial felts by brief chloroform washing, and their amount is proportional to the number of spores present. Three pure spore-coat depsipeptides have no demonstrable antibiotic activity.
