The Actin-Interacting Protein AIP1 Is Essential for Actin Organization and Plant Development
Cell division, growth, and cytoplasmic organization require a dynamic actin cytoskeleton. The filamentous actin (F-actin) network is regulated by actin binding proteins that modulate actin dynamics.Expand

GFP-FABD2 fusion construct allows in vivo visualization of the dynamic actin cytoskeleton in all cells of Arabidopsis seedlings.
In vivo visualization of filamentous actin in all cells of Arabidopsis thaliana seedlings is essential for understanding the numerous roles of the actin cytoskeleton in diverse processes of cellExpand

Transcription of the Arabidopsis CPD gene, encoding a steroidogenic cytochrome P450, is negatively controlled by brassinosteroids.
The Arabidopsis CPD gene encodes a cytochrome P450 steroid side-chain hydroxylase (CYP90) that plays an essential role in the biosynthesis of the plant hormone brassinolide. Expression of the CPDExpand

Arabidopsis Synaptotagmin 1 Is Required for the Maintenance of Plasma Membrane Integrity and Cell Viability[W]
Plasma membrane repair in animal cells uses synaptotagmin 7, a Ca2+-activated membrane fusion protein that mediates delivery of intracellular membranes to wound sites by a mechanism resemblingExpand

Inactivation of Brassinosteroid Biological Activity by a Salicylate-inducible Steroid Sulfotransferase from Brassica napus *
Recent discoveries from brassinosteroid-deficient mutants led to the recognition that plants, like animals, use steroids to regulate their growth and development. We describe the characterization ofExpand

Endocytosis, Actin Cytoskeleton, and Signaling1
Endocytosis is the internalization of plasma membrane proteins and lipids, extracellular molecules, fluids, particles, exosomes, viruses, and bacteria. Endocytic internalization is a conservedExpand

Actin-based motility of endosomes is linked to the polar tip growth of root hairs.
Plant tip growth has been recognized as an actin-based cellular process requiring targeted exocytosis and compensatory endocytosis to occur at the growth cone. However, the identity of subcellularExpand

Imaging the actin cytoskeleton in growing pollen tubes
Given the importance of the actin cytoskeleton to pollen tube growth, we have attempted to decipher its structure, organization and dynamic changes in living, growing pollen tubes of NicotianaExpand

Syntaxin of plant proteins SYP123 and SYP132 mediate root hair tip growth in Arabidopsis thaliana.
Root hairs are fast-growing tubular protrusions on root epidermal cells that play important roles in water and nutrient uptake in plants. The tip-focused polarized growth of root hairs isExpand

Neutral red as a probe for confocal laser scanning microscopy studies of plant roots.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Neutral red (NR), a lipophilic phenazine dye, has been widely used in various biological systems as a vital stain for bright-field microscopy. In its unprotonated form itExpand
