Microtubule and katanin-dependent dynamics of microtubule nucleation complexes in the acentrosomal Arabidopsis cortical array
Microtubule nucleation in interphase plant cells primarily occurs through branching from pre-existing microtubules at dispersed sites in the cell cortex. The minus ends of new microtubules are oftenExpand

Low concentrations of propyzamide and oryzalin alter microtubule dynamics in Arabidopsis epidermal cells.
Previous studies showed that sub-micromolar concentrations of the microtubule-targeting herbicide propyzamide cause a right-handed helical arrangement of cortical microtubule arrays and left-handedExpand

A mutation in the Arabidopsis γ-tubulin-containing complex causes helical growth and abnormal microtubule branching
Plant cortical microtubules are mainly nucleated on previously established microtubules, grow at a narrow range of angles to the wall of mother microtubules, and eventually are released from theExpand

RNA processing bodies, peroxisomes, Golgi bodies, mitochondria, and endoplasmic reticulum tubule junctions frequently pause at cortical microtubules.
Organelle motility, essential for cellular function, is driven by the cytoskeleton. In plants, actin filaments sustain the long-distance transport of many types of organelles, and microtubulesExpand

Arabidopsis GCP3-interacting protein 1/MOZART 1 is an integral component of the γ-tubulin-containing microtubule nucleating complex.
Microtubules in eukaryotic cells are nucleated from ring-shaped complexes that contain γ-tubulin and a family of homologous γ-tubulin complex proteins (GCPs), but the subunit composition of theExpand

GCP-WD Mediates γ-TuRC Recruitment and the Geometry of Microtubule Nucleation in Interphase Arrays of Arabidopsis
Many differentiated animal cells, and all higher plant cells, build interphase microtubule arrays of specific architectures without benefit of a central organizer, such as a centrosome, to controlExpand

CLASP promotes microtubule array reorientation by acting as a specific severing rescue factor
Eukaryotic cells build microtubule arrays to perform essential cellular functions, including division and morphogenesis. Central to building and reorganizing these cytoskeletal arrays is the creationExpand
