Key Notes:

heterokaryotic – n+n ploidy in coenocytic hypha; a mix of two different haploid nuclei flowing throughout the fused mycelium

dikaryotic – n+n ploidy in septate hypha; each cell has two different haploid nuclei

Note: Fungi life cycle consists of asexual and sexual life cycle.

plasmogamy – is a process where the cytoplasm of two different fungi fuse together

karyogamy – the different haploid nuclei fuse to form a diploid nucleus
