Exploring the crucial role of septate hyphae in multicellular fungi: a mycological study

What is septate hyphae?

Hyphae with cross-walls

Septate hyphae are the specialized, thread-like structures of multicellular fungi that have cross-walls or partitions called septa that divide the hyphae into cells. These partitions are perforated by small pores called dolipores or septal pores that allow the transfer of nutrients, organelles and electrical signals between cells. Septate hyphae are found in most fungi, including ascomycetes, basidiomycetes, and some zygomycetes and chytridiomycetes. They serve a crucial role in the reproductive cycle of fungi, and as such, the study of septate hyphae has become an important field of mycology. Fungi with septate hyphae are capable of forming complex mycelial networks and modifying their morphology to suit the environment in which they are found.
