Effect of staurosporine on growth and hyphal morphology of Pleurotus ostreatus

Effect of staurosporine on growth and hyphal morphology of Pleurotus ostreatus

Journal of General Microbiology 139(1): 161-164

Staurosporine is a strong inhibitor of protein kinases. At low concentrations, this antibiotic inhibited the growth of both protoplasts and mycelium of Pleurotus ostreatus. Its minimum inhibitory concentrations were 6.5 mu-M and 9.6 mu-M for protoplasts and mycelium, respectively. At a lower concentration (0.54 mu-M), it caused swelling of hyphal tips and subapical regions while some hyphae became stubby and bulbous. The phenomena were compared with the morphological effects of polyoxin D, which is a competitive inhibitor of chitin synthase. The results suggest the involvement of protein kinases(s) in regulation of apical growth of fungi.
