Abstract

Contrary to earlier work where tap water was sufficient to induce germination, the conidia strains used in this study required nutrient. Radiosensitivities (D10) of conidia irradiated in air-equilibrium, oxygen- and nitrogen-saturated tap water were 263, 119 and 333 Gy respectively. Conidia were inactivated by 60 min UV exposure, but temperatures of-74°C and -28°C failed to arrest germination. Commercial disinfectants arrested germination of conidia.
