Morphogenetic transitions between the yeast, pseudohyphal and true hyphal forms of the fungal pathogen Candida albicans are coordinated with the cell cycle. In true hyphae, large vacuoles are formed in subapical compartments that influence compartment size and hence cell cycle progression and branching frequency. Here, live-cell imaging techniques were applied to study the dynamic process of vacuolar segregation in the three different morphological forms of C. albicans. We show the presence of… CONTINUE READING
