Composition and organisation of extracellular matrices around germ tubes and appressoria ofColletotrichum lindemuthianum

Abstract

The ultrastructure and composition of the extracellular matrices (ECMs) associated with germ tubes and appressoria ofColletotrichum lindemuthianum have been examined. Flexuous fibres (fimbriae), up to 6 μm long and 4–30 nm in diameter, protruded from the surface of germ tubes and appressoria. Anionic colloidal gold and lectin cytochemistry showed that ECMs… (More)
