Roles for the microtubule (MT) cytoskeleton in fungal growth include mitosis and nuclear migration but otherwise are less clearly understood. Confocal microscopy was used to quantify MT abundance and growth rate in hyphae of a haploid Aspergillus nidulans strain containing green fluorescent protein (GFP)-α-tubulin. There was no correlation between growth rate and MT abundance for 112 growing hyphae in an untreated population. However, 109 nongrowing hyphae from the same group had lower average… CONTINUE READING
