Conidia production is attenuated in null hexA mutants. a The electron micrograph of conidiophores of WT, ΔhexA and ΔhexAC. Strains were pre-cultured on PDA and Yes were transferred on sterile slides under 37 °C overnight to induce conidiophores. (Magnification scale: ×200) b The number of conidia in WT, ΔhexA and ΔhexAC strains was measured after grown on YES and PDA agar for 5 days at 37 °C. Values are a mean of four replicates. ***Significant difference between the WT and mutant strains at P < 0.001, as assessed by one-way ANOVA and Dunnett’s multiple-comparisons test
