  • Conidia from the indicated strains were germinated on coverslips for 12–16 hr at 42°. Coverslips were stained with Calcofluor White and Hoechst 33258 to visualize septa and nuclei, respectively. For each strain, 200 germlings were scored for the presence of septa. The SI represents the percentage of cells that contain one or more septa. Experiments were repeated three times; data shown are the mean SI and the standard error of the mean.
