Fungal Life Cycle
This review will follow the life cycle of a basidiomycete as a guide to the
generalized fungal life cycle
General Terms
 Mycelium – the main body of the fungus (located under ground)
 Hyphae – filaments/ thread-like structures of the fungus which grow together into
a kind of mat, which we call the mycelium
 Spore – the generative product of fungal reproduction; it is haploid and can grow
into another mycelium when it lands on a suitable substrate
 Haploid – term referring to the state in which cell nuclei contain only one set of
the organism’s chromosomes (often abbreviated as “n” or “1n” )
 Diploid – term referring to the state in which cell nuclei contain two sets of the
organism’s chromosomes (often abbreviated as “2n”)
 Dikaryotic – term referring to the state in which the organism’s cells contain two
nuclei (each with one set of chromosomes) that are not fused (often
abbreviated as “n+n”
