F-actin rearrangements and analysis of physical environment of invasive hyphal growth.
(University of Canterbury. School of Biological Sciences, 2009)
Invasive growth through a substrate requires a massive amount of penetrative force, and this is generated in the space of a few microns in a growing tip. This process is known to be critical in the root hair, pollen tube, ...
The roles of integrin-like proteins, tyrosine phosphorylation and F-actin in hyphal tip growth
(University of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2006)
Tip growth, the mechanism by which hyphae, pollen tubes, root hairs, and algal rhizoids extend, is a complex and dynamic process that is characterised by localised extension at the extreme apex of the cell and morphological ...
