01/15/2008 MIBO4700 Dr. Langford Zygomycetes when they reproduce asexually do so by sporangiospores, when they do so  sexually they do so by zygospores. Typically have non-septate hyphae. Rhizopus  genus in Zygomycetes sometimes can be found on moldy bread.  Genera can be placed in classes depending on how they look under the microscope. Ascomycetes asexual spores are conidiospores and covered by an ascospore.  Sexual spore is in a sac known as an ascus Make septate hyphae Genus known as  penicillium  and  eupenicillium Basidomycetes Includes mushrooms Asexual spores are conidospores but sexual spores are basidiospores. Spores typically found on the underside of the mushroom “overhang” Deuteromycetes  “left over category” Arthrospore  dried out desiccated hyphae Coccidioides forms arhtrospores, found in San Jaquin valley [see note handout about ajello] Cryptococcus Neoformans is the most common cause of bacterial meningitis in AIDS patients.  When they found out it could reproduce sexually it was called phylobasidiella neoformans

Has genetic homology with basidomycetes. Chytridomycetes are still fungi but not considered important to human pathogenesis. They have  very complex biochemical structures on their surface. So they have to bind. This organism is HUGE in ecology because it is infecting frogs, and other amphibians. Hypochytrids and Oomycetes can be put into supercatagory known as chromista Plasmidia are now protists [check the sheet in the notes] These can make zoospores Trichomycetes  some people want to put into zygomycetes but not human pathogens. Found
