Abstract

A strain of Monascus was grown in submerged, shaken culture using a glucose-salts mediumn. The formation of ascospores was studied by microscopic examination of samples taken at regular intervals for 6 days. All the stages of sexual reproduction previously described for Monascus were observed. The unusual feature of the strain studied was that it produced sexual structures and cliestothecia of greatly varying sizes.
