  • Conidia were germinated on coverslips for 12 hr at 42°. Coverslips were stained with Hoechst 33258 and Calcofluor to visualize nuclei and septa, respectively. The septation index reflects the percentage of germlings possessing at least one septa (n = 200). The values presented represent the mean average of three independent experiments.
