Findings suggest that MAF1 is required for the early differentiation phase of appressorium formation, whereas CMK1 is involved in the maturation of appressoria.
Microtubule dynamics during infection-related morphogenesis of Colletotrichum lagenarium.
Time-lapse views showed that interphase microtubules contact a microtubule-associated center at the cell cortex of conidia that is different from a nuclear spindle pole body (SPB) before their disassembly.
