Figure 5

Confocal microscopy showing the induction, homing and fusion of fusion hyphae in the mature colony of Neurospora crassa after staining with FM1-43. Note the growth of three branches (1-3) from one hypha towards two short branches on the opposite hypha (4 and 5). After 39 min, a further branch (6) has been initiated on the lower hypha. Branches 7 and 8 fused prior to time 0 min. Different stages in fusion pore formation (arrows) can be observed after 3 and 39 min. Bar = 10 μm. (Reproduced with permission from: Hickey PC et al.
