MOR 1 is essential for organizing cortical microtubules in plants

Whittington, A; Vugrek, O; Wei, Ke-Jun; Hasenbein, Nortrud; Sugimoto, K; Rashbrooke, Madeleine; Wasteneys, Geoffrey


Microtubules orchestrate cell division and morphogenesis, but how they disassemble and reappear at different subcellular locations is unknown. Microtubule organizing centres are thought to have an important role, but in higher plants microtubules assemble in ordered configurations even though microtubule organizing centres are inconspicuous or absent. Plant cells generate highly organized microtubule arrays that coordinate mitosis, cytokinesis and expansion. Inhibiting microtubule assembly...[Show more]
