We propose a simple model for mass transport within a fungal hypha and its subsequent growth. Inspired by the role of microtubule-transported vesicles, we embody the internal dynamics of mass inside a hypha with mutually excluding particles progressing stochastically along a growing one-dimensional lattice. The connection between long-range transport of materials for growth and the resulting extension of the hyphal tip has not previously been addressed in the modeling literature to our… CONTINUE READING
