Abstract

Estradiol prevented cholesterol-induced sexual reproduction by the fungus Pythium periplocum. Inhibition byestradiol was partial at 10^(-6)M and complete at 10^(-5)M, the same concentrations at which cholesterol and β-sitosterol were initially and maximally active. Higher concentrations of estradiol were required for growth inhibition than for inhibition of reproduction.
