A new explanation for soft rot cavity formation in the S2 layer of wood cell walls


Cavity formation in the S2 layer of the secondary cell wall by soft rot fungi is initiated following the establishment of a T-branch by the extension growth of a proboscis hypha. This growth is inhibited after a time and lateral dissolution of the cell wall takes place to form a cavity and enlarge the hypha within it until cavity and hypha are large enough… (More)
