  • a Spores (500 spores per plate) from representative zygomycete species were germinated on YPD agar containing either 100 nM rapamycin or 1 μg/ml FK506. Spores were germinated for 72 h at room temperature, and colony diameters were measured.

  • b Standard errors were calculated for 8 replicates.
