The growth rate of the Phycomyces sporangiophore fluctuates under constant environmental conditions. These fluctuations underlie the well-characterized sensory responses to environmental changes. We compared growth fluctuations in sporangiophores of unstimulated wild type and behavioral mutants by use of maximum entropy spectral analysis, a mathematical technique that estimates the frequency and amplitude of oscillations in a time series. The mutants studied are believed to be altered near the… CONTINUE READING
