Growth of the filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans begins when the conidium breaks dormancy and grows isotropically. Eventually a germ tube emerges and the axis of growth remains fixed in the primary hypha while new growth axes are established basally to form secondary germ tubes and lateral branches. Rho1 is a Rho family GTPase that has been shown to be involved in polarity establishment and cell wall deposition in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. A gene predicted to encode a Rho1 homolog was… CONTINUE READING
