But they thrive and sporulate only in damp places where the atmosphere is more or less saturated with moisture. For example, Rhizopus stolonifer will colonize the moist interior of a loaf of bread, but won't produce its characteristic sporangiophores and mitosporangia on the outside of the bread unless the surrounding atmosphere is humid. If we persuade the fungus to sporulate by keeping the loaf in a damp chamber a plastic bag containing a few drops of water will do and then take it out of the bag, the sporangiophores will quickly collapse.

July Asci of Morchella elatacontaining ascospores Sordaria fimicola ascus plus ascospore An ascospore is a spore contained in an ascus or that was produced inside an ascus.
This kind of spore is specific to fungi classified as ascomycetes Ascomycota. Ascospores are formed in ascus under optimal conditions. Typically, a single ascus will contain eight ascospores. The eight spores are produced by meiosis followed by a mitotic division.
Two meiotic divisions turn the original diploid zygote nucleus into four haploid ones. That is, the single original diploid cell from which the whole process begins contains two complete sets of chromosomes.
In preparation for meiosis, all the DNA of both sets is duplicated, to make a total of four sets. The nucleus that contains the four sets divides twice, separating into four new nuclei — each of which has one complete set of chromosomes.
Following this process, each of the four new nuclei duplicates its DNA and undergoes a division by mitosis. As a result, the ascus will contain four pairs of spores. Then the ascospores are released from ascus.
The ascospores of Blumeria graminis are formed and released under the humid conditions. These ascospores are globose and located in asci. Each ascus contains one to four ascospores. The asci do not rupture at maturity. Ascospores are stained with Kinyoun stain and ascospore stain.
When stained with Gram stain, ascospores are gram-negative while vegetative cells are gram-positive. The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe is a single-celled haploid organism that reproduces asexually by mitosis and fission. However, exposure to the DNA damaging agent hydrogen peroxide induces pair-wise mating of haploid cells of opposite mating type to form transient diploid cells that then undergo meiosis to form asci, each with four ascospores.
These findings suggest that mating followed by meiosis is an adaptation for repairing DNA damage in the parental haploid cells in order to allow production of viable progeny ascospores.Very-long-chain aldehydes induce B. graminis ascospore appressorium formation..
A hydrophobic surface stimulates ascospore germination. • Ascospores can differentiate appressoria with or without presence of free water. The quality of bread is characterised by its flavour, nutritional value, texture and shelf life.
In the baking industry there characteristics are improved by addition of so called "improvers" or enzymes (which normally are incorporated in the improvers). An ascospore is a spore contained in an ascus or that was produced inside an ascus.
