The Rab GTPase YPT‐1 associates with Golgi cisternae and Spitzenkörper microvesicles in Neurospora crassa
Vesicle traffic involves budding, transport, tethering and fusion of vesicles with acceptor membranes. GTP‐bound small Rab GTPases interact with the membrane of vesicles, promoting their associationExpand

Six Hydrophobins Are Involved in Hydrophobin Rodlet Formation in Aspergillus nidulans and Contribute to Hydrophobicity of the Spore Surface
Hydrophobins are amphiphilic proteins able to self-assemble at water-air interphases and are only found in filamentous fungi. In Aspergillus nidulans two hydrophobins, RodA and DewA, have beenExpand

The Aspergillus nidulans Kinesin-3 Tail Is Necessary and Sufficient to Recognize Modified Microtubules
Posttranslational microtubule modifications (PTMs) are numerous; however, the biochemical and cell biological roles of those modifications remain mostly an enigma. The Aspergillus nidulans kinesin-3Expand
