Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Conidium"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.

Definitions

  1. The conidium is released by the rupture of the supporting cell after a septum has been formed.
  2. Thus a conidium is a mitospore which is correct just that mitospore is a very old word.

Microconidium

  1. The functional male gamete may be a spermatium, microconidium, or conidium.

Central Cell

  1. The central cell is typically darker and enlarged compared to the end cells in the conidium.

Holoblastic

  1. Conidiogenesis is likely holoblastic (the wall of the conidiophore forms the conidium) (Fig.

Mature Spore

  1. A conidium of Stachybotrys Chartarum showing the ridged surface of a mature spore.

Conidium Development

  1. We will examine eight different kinds of conidium development: six blastic, two thallic.

Youngest Conidium

  1. Basipetal- refers to conidium arrangement where the youngest conidium is proximal to the conidiogenous cell; 4.

Mode

  1. Holoblastic: A mode of blastic conidium ontogeny in which all the cell wall layers of the conidiogenous cell are involved in conidium development.

Cell

  1. Thallic: A mode of conidial ontogeny where a conidium is formed from a pre-existing hyphal segment or cell.

Longitudinal

  1. Muriform: A conidium with both longitudinal and transverse septa.

Apical

  1. An apical ring composed of outer cell wall material remains as each conidium is released.

Longitudinal Axis

  1. From the terminal cell of the conidium, germ tubes may develop and elongate in the direction of longitudinal axis of the conidium.

Asexually

  1. A mitospore (conidium, conidiospore) is an asexually produced propagule, the result of mitosis.

Asexual

  1. Chlamydospores can be asexual (and technically, thus, a kind of conidium), or sexual.

Septum

  1. Arthroconidium may be defined as thallic conidium that is released by fission through a double septum or from lysis of a disjunctor cell.

Thesaurus

  1. Definition of conidium from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary with audio pronunciations, thesaurus, Word of the Day, and word games.

Free Online Medical Dictionary

  1. TD {font-size:10pt} conidium - definition of conidium in the Medical dictionary - by the Free Online Medical Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

Septa

  1. The septa are transverse and divide each conidium into multiple cells.

Basidiomycota

  1. This led to the evolution of the conidium, an asexual spore typically produced by the Ascomycota and Basidiomycota where an anamorph stage is produced.
  2. Novel mechanisms for conidium and meiospore formation and ballistosporic discharge have evolved in the Ascomycota and Basidiomycota.

Germination

  1. Upon germination, the conidium produces a germ tube that penetrates the insect cuticle and enters the hemocoel.
  2. The mycelium is initiated with the germination of an ascospore, or conidium.

Spores

  1. Scanning electron microscope image of a conidium and spores.
  2. Asexual reproduction in ascomycetes involves the production of spores, each of which is called a conidium.

Hyphomycetes

  1. This is one of the commonest kinds of conidium ontogeny, found in 360 of the 1250 known genera of Hyphomycetes.

Conidia

  1. Asexual reproduction is by means of conidia (sing.=conidium) or may be lacking.
  2. Acropetal: A chain of conidia in which the youngest conidium is at the tip and the oldest is at the base.

Hypha

  1. In thallic ontogeny, the conidia arise from a length of hypha; septa are laid down before each conidium swells.
  2. Germ tube: A hypha initially developing from a conidium or spore.

Sporangium

  1. FAO:0000044 sterigma A small hyphal branch or structure which supports a sporangium, a conidium, or a basidiospore.
  2. A sporangium that germinates in this way is often referred to as a spore or conidium.

Conidiophores

  1. Conidiophores (4.5-6 m wide) are brown, simple or branched, geniculate and sympodial, bending at the points where each conidium arises from.
  2. Conidium: Conidia are sporangia grown on elaborate structures called conidiophores.

Conidiophore

  1. The stalk is called the conidiophore and the spore is called conidium.
  2. Annular frill: A ring or skirtlike portion of cell wall material at the base of a conidium that remains when the conidium separates from its conidiophore.
  3. During conidium development the cytoplasm of the conidiophore is evacuated into the developing conidium.

Conidium

  1. Conidium (plural, conidia) An asexual spore of mold (Hyphomycetes), produced on the external surface of mycelium, not in a sporangium.
  2. Conidium(a): Asexual spore supported on a hypha, NOT contained in a sporangium.
  3. Conidium A thin-walled, asexual spore borne exogenously on an often specialized hypha (conidiophore) and is deciduous at maturity.
