Cell Elongation and Microtubule Behavior in the Arabidopsis Hypocotyl: Responses to Ethylene and Auxin
During elongation of the Arabidopsis hypocotyl, each cell reacts to light and hormones in a time- and position-dependent manner. Growth in darkness results in the maximal length a wild-type cell canExpand

XET activity is found near sites of growth and cell elongation in bryophytes and some green algae: new insights into the evolution of primary cell wall elongation.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS In angiosperms xyloglucan endotransglucosylase (XET)/hydrolase (XTH) is involved in reorganization of the cell wall during growth and development. The location of oligo-xyloglucanExpand

Apoplastic Alkalinization Is Instrumental for the Inhibition of Cell Elongation in the Arabidopsis Root by the Ethylene Precursor 1-Aminocyclopropane-1-Carboxylic Acid1[W][OA]
In Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana; Columbia-0) roots, the so-called zone of cell elongation comprises two clearly different domains: the transition zone, a postmeristematic region (approximatelyExpand

Infection of Chinese cabbage by Plasmodiophora brassicae leads to a stimulation of plant growth: impacts on cell wall metabolism and hormone balance.
The importance of plant hormones in clubroot infection has long been recognized. The morphological changes, such as cell division and cell elongation leading to gall formation are triggered in theExpand

Xyloglucan endotransglucosylase activity loosens a plant cell wall.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Plant cells undergo cell expansion when a temporary imbalance between the hydraulic pressure of the vacuole and the extensibility of the cell wall makes the cell volume increaseExpand

Auxins and cytokinins control DNA endoreduplication and deduplication in single cells of tobacco
Abstract In single cells of Nicotiana tabacum L. an auxin-only signal induces elongation and DNA endoreduplication. A subsequent cytokinin+auxin signal induces cell division first as amitosis leadingExpand

Enzymic characterization of two recombinant xyloglucan endotransglucosylase/hydrolase (XTH) proteins of Arabidopsis and their effect on root growth and cell wall extension.
Xyloglucan endotransglucosylase/hydrolases (XTHs) are enzymes involved in the modification of load-bearing cell wall components. They cleave xyloglucan chains and, often, re-form bonds to theExpand

Differential expression of AtXTH17, AtXTH18, AtXTH19 and AtXTH20 genes in Arabidopsis roots. Physiological roles in specification in cell wall construction.
Xyloglucan endotransglucosylase/hydrolases (XTHs) are a class of enzymes that are capable of splitting and reconnecting xyloglucan molecules, and are implicated in the construction and restructuringExpand

UV radiation reduces epidermal cell expansion in leaves of Arabidopsis thaliana.
Plants have evolved a broad spectrum of mechanisms to ensure survival under changing and suboptimal environmental conditions. Alterations of plant architecture are commonly observed followingExpand

Of light and length: Regulation of hypocotyl growth in Arabidopsis
At all stages, plant development results from a complex integration of multiple endogenous and environmental signals. The sedentary nature of plants strongly enhances the impact of the environment onExpand
