In the wild-type strains of the homobasidiomycete Schizophyllum commune microtubules were totally depolymerized by low concentrations of nocodazole, while high concentrations of benomyl only modified the structure of microtubule cytoskeleton. In the nocodazole-tolerant mutant strain NT30 the microtubule cytoskeleton remained partly functional at a nocodazole concentration which demolished the microtubules in the wild-type strains. The continuation of apical growth for several hours in the wild… 
Effects of nocodazole and brefeldin A on microtubule cytoskeleton and membrane organization in the homobasidiomyceteSchizophyllum commune
TLDR
The results of the experiments with nocodazole suggest that, in filamentous homobasidiomycetes the subtle organization of cytoplasm necessary for the polar growth at the apex is maintained only in the presence of an intact MT cytoskeleton.
The role of microtubules in rapid hyphal tip growth of Aspergillus nidulans.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that although microtubules are not strictly required for polarized growth, they are rate-limiting for the growth of hyphal tip cells and that A. nidulans exhibits a remarkable spatial regulation of microtubule disassembly within hyphalTip cells.
Effects of methyl benzimidazoIe-2-yl carbamate on microtubule and actin cytoskeleton inAspergillus nidulans
TLDR
Changes probably resulted from the disassembly of MTs and the reorientation of actin cytoskeleton in MBC-treated apexes and suggested that MTs would organize the actin at the apex, which in turn would restrict the vesicle fusion to a narrow area at the hyphal tip.
Effect of cytochalasin A on apical growth, actin cytoskeleton organization and enzyme secretion in Aspergillus nidulans.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that a polymerized actin cytoskeleton is required for normal apical growth, hyphal tip shape and polarized enzyme secretion in A. nidulans.
A fungal kinesin required for organelle motility, hyphal growth, and morphogenesis.
TLDR
It is a unique demonstration that a microtubule-based motor protein is essential for normal positioning of the Spitzenkörper, thus providing a new insight into the cellular basis for the aberrant hyphal morphology.
Actin cytoskeleton and organelle movement in the sporangiophore of the zygomycete Phycomyces blakesleeanus.
TLDR
The zonation of the cytoskeleton density correlated well with the local growth rates at the tip of the sporangiophore, and appears thus as a structural prerequisite for growth and bending.
Immunofluorescence microscopy of the microtubule cytoskeleton during conjugate division in the dikaryon Pleurotus ostreatus N001
TLDR
The use of fluorescence microscopy made it possible to examine the changes in the cytoplasmic microtubules, the configuration of the mitotic apparatus, the site of septation and the post-mitotic nuclear migrations during conjugate division in P. ostreatus dikaryotic hyphae.
Pyruvate decarboxylase filaments are associated with the cortical cytoskeleton of asci and spores over the sexual cycle of filamentous ascomycetes.
TLDR
The results suggest that PDC in filamentous fungi may perform two functions, intervening as an enzyme in vegetative metabolism and as a structural protein associated with the cytoskeleton during sexual development.
