Abstract

SUMMARY: Cholesterol promoted oospore formation in ; very few oospores were formed when cholestanol was incorporated in the medium instead. Above a critical concentration of cholesterol, cholestanol competitively inhibited oospore formation by cholesterol when both were added to the medium together. At low cholesterol concentrations, the addition of some cholestanol increased the number of oospores; further addition of cholestanol was inhibitory. Cholesterol and cholestanol stimulated vegetative growth to a similar extent.
