New techniques enable comparative analysis of microtubule orientation, wall texture and growth rate in intact roots of Arabidopsis thaliana

Sugimoto, K; Wasteneys, Geoffrey


This article explores root epidermal cell elongation and its dependence on two structural elements of cells, cortical microtubules and cellulose microfibrils. The recent identification of Arabidopsis morphology mutants with putative cell wall or cytoskeletal defects demands a procedure for examining and comparing wall architecture and microtubule organization patterns in this species. We developed methods to examine cellulose microfibrils by field emission scanning electron microscopy and...[Show more]
