We examined in fine detail growth kinetics and intracellular events during lateral and apical branching in hyphae of Neurospora crassa. By high-resolution video-enhanced light microscopy, we found remarkable differences in the events preceding lateral vs apical branching. While apical branching involved a significant disturbance in the apical growth of the parental hypha, lateral branching occurred without any detectable alterations in the growth of the parental hypha. Prior to the emergence of… CONTINUE READING
