- The machinery for cell polarity, cell morphogenesis, and the cytoskeleton in the Basidiomycete fungus Ustilago maydis-a survey of the genome sequenceFlora Banuett
Department of Biological Sciences, California State University, 1250 Bellflower Boulevard, Long Beach, CA 90840, USA
Fungal Genet Biol 45:S3-S14. 2008..In most cases, not surprisingly, the closest homolog is among filamentous fungi, not the yeasts, and in some cases it is among mammals...
- The cell end marker Tea4 regulates morphogenesis and pathogenicity in the basidiomycete fungus Ustilago maydisMichael Valinluck
Department of Biological Sciences, California State University Long Beach, 1250 Bellflower Boulevard, Long Beach, CA 90840, United States
Fungal Genet Biol 66:54-68. 2014..Basidiomycete and ascomycete Tea4 homologues share SH3 and Glc7 domains. Tea4 in basidiomycetes has additional domains, which has led us to hypothesize that Tea4 has novel functions in this group of fungi. ..

- Role of the nuclear migration protein Lis1 in cell morphogenesis in Ustilago maydisMichael Valinluck
Department of Biological Sciences, California State University, 1250 Bellflower Boulevard, Long Beach, California 90840 USA
Mycologia 102:493-512. 2010..We propose that lis1 controls microtubule dynamics and thus the regulated delivery of vesicles to growth sites and other cell domains that govern nuclear movements...
- Fuz1, a MYND domain protein, is required for cell morphogenesis in Ustilago maydisEmily Chew
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, California State University, 1250 Bellflower Boulevard, Long Beach, California 90840, USA
Mycologia 100:31-46. 2008..Fuz1 is also required for cell wall integrity and to prevent secretion of a dark pigment. We propose that the MYND domain may interact with different proteins to regulate cell morphogenesis...
