On the role of microtubules, cell end markers, and septal microtubule organizing centres on site selection for polar growth in Aspergillus nidulans.

Abstract

Tip growth of filamentous fungi depends on continuous polarized growth and requires the actin and microtubule (MT) cytoskeleton. Cortical proteins at polarity sites, also known as cell end markers, play important roles in polarity maintenance. Deletion of the cell end marker teaA results in zigzag hyphal morphologies, which is contrary to the normal… (More)
