Essential role of a kinesin-like protein in Arabidopsis trichome morphogenesis.
Little is known about how cell shape is controlled. We are using the morphogenesis of trichomes (plant hairs) on the plant Arabidopsis thaliana as a model to study how cell shape is controlled.Expand

Cell-specific nuclear import of plasmid DNA
One factor limiting the success of non-viral gene therapy vectors is the relative inability to target genes specifically to a desired cell type. To address this limitation, we have begun to developExpand
