Figure 2. Cleistothecia from (a) recipient Monascus purpureus strain KB20M1 and (b) KB20M1 transformed with cosmid pMOcosX.

Both cultures were grown for 10d on PDA. The arrow in (b) points to one of the variable-sized, relatively large structures that were produced instead of ascospores in the transformant. Both (a) and (b) were photographed at 600X.
