    Abstract

    Germ tube and subsequent mycelial development from yeast-like and swollen cells of Aureobasidium pullulans (IMI 45533) was induced by yeast extract in defined liquid medium. This morphogenetic transition was dependent on inoculum size; pH effects were not involved and once mycelial development was induced in the cells it continued even in the absence of yeast extract. The progeny of mycelium and future generations were unaffected by yeast extract. Cessation of germination was not due to any obvious medium changes but appeared to be partly due to the production of a germination inhibitor, which could also be produced by control cells grown in the absence of yeast extract.
