Unicellular fungi

Yeasts
-saccromyces

1

Cell wall made of

Chitin

2

Is a fungus a bacteria? Prok? Euk? Eubacteria

It is a eukaryote
-much more closely related to us then bacteria
-has a nucleus mitochondria and organelles

3

Can they cause diseases?

Yes athletes foot

4

Life cycle of fungus

-can do both asexual or sexual reproduction

5

Asexual reproduction

1. Budding
2. Spore formation

6

Budding

A fungal cell grows out of an existing fungal cell unit distinct

7

Spore formation

Produced by mitosis, spores will germimate under favorable conditions to become active

8

Sexual reproduction

-two haploid gametes fuse into one cell. That cell has two nuclei so its called a DIKARYON
-those nuclei will then fuse into one nucleus making a diploid zygote
-zygote undergoes meiosis

9

Adult fungal cells

They are haploid and they make haploid gametes

10

Dikaryon

During sexual reproduction two haploid gametes fuse and there are two nuclei
