The distributional changes and role of microtubules in Nod factor-challenged Medicago sativa root hairs

Weerasinghe, R; Collings, David; Johannes, Eva; Allen, N S


The normal tip-growing pattern exhibited by root hairs of legumes is disrupted when the hair is exposed to Nod factors generated by compatible bacteria capable of inducing nodule formation. Since microtubules (MTs) play an important role in regulating directionality and stability of apical growth in root hairs [T.N. Bibikova et al. (1999) Plant J 17:657-665], we examined the possibility that Nod factors might affect the MT distribution patterns in root hairs of Medicago sativa L. We observed...[Show more]
