Root gravitropism describes the orientation of root growth along the gravity vector and is mediated by differential cell elongation in the root meristem. This response requires the coordinated, asymmetric distribution of the phytohormone auxin within the root meristem, and depends on the concerted activities of PIN proteins and AUX1 - members of the auxin(More)
Controlling variations in plasma membrane (PM) protein abundance is of utmost importance for development in higher plants. For modulating PM protein activity, endocytosed proteins can be either cycled between PM and endosomes or sorted for their irreversible inactivation to lysosomes/vacuoles. Cargo ubiquitination triggers vacuolar delivery for degradation,(More)
A strict control of abundance and localization of plasma membrane proteins is essential for plants to be able to respond quickly and accurately to a changing environment. The proteins responsible for the initial recognition and concentration of ubiquitinated plasma membrane proteins destined for degradation, are well characterized in mammals and yeast, (1)(More)
Directional transport of auxin is essential for plant development, with PIN auxin transport proteins representing an integral part of the machinery that controls hormone distribution. However, unlike the rapidly emerging framework of molecular determinants regulating PIN protein abundance and subcellular localization, insights into mechanisms controlling(More)
