Using a green fluorescent protein (GFP)-tubulin fusion protein, we have investigated the dynamic rearrangement of microtubules during appressorium formation of Colletotrichum lagenarium. Two alpha-tubulin genes of C. lagenarium were isolated, and GFP-alpha-tubulin protein was expressed in this fungus. The strain expressing the fusion protein formed fluorescent filaments that were disrupted by a microtubule-depolymerizing drug, benomyl, demonstrating successful visualization of microtubules. In… 
Live-cell imaging of tubulin in the filamentous fungus Magnaporthe grisea treated with anti-microtubule and anti-microfilament agents
Summary.Microtubule dynamics were examined in live cells of the fungal plant pathogen Magnaporthe grisea transformed for constitutive expression of a fusion protein containing enhanced
The role of microtubules in cellular organization and endocytosis in the plant pathogen Ustilago maydis
TLDR
The data suggest that endocytotic membrane recycling participates in local exocytosis, and that the microtubule cytoskeleton has a crucial role in this process.
A Kelch repeat protein, Cokel1p, associates with microtubules and is involved in appressorium development in Colletotrichum orbiculare.
TLDR
Analysis of a cokel1 mutant indicated that CoKEL1 is involved in proper appressorium development and cell wall synthesis, and results suggest that Cokel1p is a microtubule-associated protein involved in infection-related morphogenesis and pathogenicity.
Kelch Repeat Protein Clakel2p and Calcium Signaling Control Appressorium Development in Colletotrichum lagenarium
TLDR
Results suggest that there could be a bypass pathway that transduces a plant-derived signal for appressorium development independent of ClaKEL2 and that a calcium signal is involved in this transduction pathway.
The mitogen-activated protein kinase gene MAF1 is essential for the early differentiation phase of appressorium formation in Colletotrichum lagenarium.
TLDR
Findings suggest that MAF1 is required for the early differentiation phase of appressorium formation, whereas CMK1 is involved in the maturation of appressoria.
Multiple Contributions of Peroxisomal Metabolic Function to Fungal Pathogenicity in Colletotrichum lagenarium
TLDR
It is suggested that peroxisomal metabolic pathways play functional roles in appressorial melanization and subsequent host invasion steps, and the latter step requires the glyoxylate cycle.
A gene involved in modifying transfer RNA is required for fungal pathogenicity and stress tolerance of Colletotrichum lagenarium
TLDR
Analysis of the infection‐deficient mutant of C.’lagenarium and the aph1 mutants suggest that the APH1 is required for the plant invasion, probably to overcome environmental stresses derived from basal preinvasion (penetration) defence of the host plants.

Role of fungal dynein in hyphal growth, microtubule organization, spindle pole body motility and nuclear migration.
TLDR
The hypothesis that DHC1 is required for the motility and functions of spindle pole bodies, normal secretory vesicle transport to the hyphal apex and normal hyphal tip cell morphogenesis is supported.
Regulation of Cell Polarity by Microtubules in Fission Yeast
TLDR
A system in which normally cylindrical fission yeast synchronously form branched cells at high frequency upon treatment with the microtubule-depolymerizing drug thiabendazole (TBZ) suggests that microtubules may be of greatest physiological importance for the maintenance of cell shape at specific points in the cell cycle.
Three microtubule-organizing centers are required for ascus growth and sporulation in the fungus Sordaria macrospora
The microtubule system of the Sordaria macrospora ascus was examined by antitubulin immunofluorescence, without the removal of the cell wall. The complex cytoskeleton revealed three possible
The use of cell division cycle mutants to investigate the control of microtubule distribution in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe.
TLDR
The unique properties of various cell division cycle mutants are used to investigate further the function of these different microtubule arrays and their temporal and positional control.
Microtubules Orient the Mitotic Spindle in Yeast through Dynein-dependent Interactions with the Cell Cortex
TLDR
Results indicate that microtubules and dynein interact to produce dynamic cortical interactions, and that these interactions result in the force driving spindle orientation.
Microtubule Dynamics from Mating through the First Zygotic Division in the Budding Yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
The shmoo tip appears to be a new model system for studying Mt plus end dynamic attachments and much like higher eukaryotes, the first mitosis after haploid cell fusion in budding yeast may forgo cell cycle checkpoints present in vegetative mitosis.
Microscopic analysis of Neurospora ropy mutants defective in nuclear distribution.
TLDR
The results reveal that defects in germination of conidia, placement of septa, and mitochondrial morphology are typical of ro mutants, and two classes of microtubules are identified in wild-type and ro mutants.
Cytoplasmic dynein and actin-related protein Arp1 are required for normal nuclear distribution in filamentous fungi
TLDR
The phenotypes of ro-1 and ro-4 mutants suggest that cytoplasmic dynein, as well as the Glued/dynactin complex, are required to maintain uniform nuclear distribution in fungal hyphae.
Induction of multiple germ tubes in Neurospora crassa by antitubulin agents.
TLDR
The results suggest that microtubule or membrane beta-tubulin is involved in the maintenance of developmental polarity during germ tube emergence and growth of N. crassa and the benomyl-induced multipolar germination of ascomycete Aspergillus nidulans is suggested.
