F-actin and integrin like proteins in Phytophthora cinnamomi
(University of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2007)
Tip growth is the primary form of growth in hyphal organisms and some plant cells. Tip growth in hyphae is highly dependent on F-actin, which acts to regulate and support growth. One of the models suggested for tip growth, ...
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 ...
