Effect of copper stress on membrane fluidity and lipid composition of a copper tolerant strain of Fusarium oxysporum

Effect of copper stress on membrane fluidity and lipid composition of a copper tolerant strain of Fusarium oxysporum

Egyptian Journal of Microbiology 2000; 34(2): 201-215

Total lipid and protein in plasma membrane were increased at all the tested concentrations of copper in the media. The maximum amounts were obtained at 200 mg Cu l-1, being 1.9 and 1.7 fold of that recorded in the control respectively. A slight increase in sterol content was also observed at 200 mg Cul-1. Most phospholipids in the membranes increased when the fungus was grown at 200 or 400 mg Cu l-1.
