Cellulose-Microtubule Uncoupling Proteins Prevent Lateral Displacement of Microtubules during Cellulose Synthesis in Arabidopsis.
It is revealed how microtubules can withstand the propulsion of the CSCs during cellulose biosynthesis and thus sustain anisotropic plant cell growth. Expand
CLAVATA-WUSCHEL signaling in the shoot meristem
This Review discusses how CLV-W US signaling coordinates stem cell proliferation with differentiation, highlighting commonalities and differences between CLAVATA-WUSCHEL pathways in different species. Expand
Building a plant cell wall at a glance

- 15 January 2018
The underpinning cell biology of the synthesis of wall carbohydrates, and their incorporation into the wall, in the model plant Arabidopsis is illustrated to illustrate the importance of plant cell walls for plant growth and for applications that the authors use in their daily life. Expand
Real-time dynamics of peptide ligand–dependent receptor complex formation in planta
The usefulness of MFIS for analyzing receptor dynamics in living plant cells is demonstrated and it is found that the CLV and flg pathways represent two different principles of signal transduction: flg22 first triggered RLK heterodimerization and later assembly into larger complexes through homomerization.

Shared and distinct functions of the pseudokinase CORYNE (CRN) in shoot and root stem cell maintenance of Arabidopsis
Highlight This study shows that the pseudokinase domain of the CLV2 co-receptor CRN is actively involved in transmitting the CLV3 peptide signal in the Arabidopsis shoot, but not in the proximal root… Expand
TAF13 interacts with PRC2 members and is essential for Arabidopsis seed development.
It is shown that in Arabidopsis TAF13 interacts with MEDEA and SWINGER, both members of a plant variant of Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 (PRC2), which play important roles during the plant life cycle, including seed development. Expand
Antagonistic Transcription Factor Complexes Modulate the Floral Transition in Rice
It is proposed that Hd3a and RFT1 are also active locally in leaves to fine-tune photoperiodic flowering responses. Expand
Cell Wall Heterogeneity in Root Development of Arabidopsis
Data is compiled linking cell wall content and re-modeling to developmental stages of root cells, and how root cell walls respond to certain environmental changes are dissected. Expand
System-wide organization of actin cytoskeleton determines organelle transport in hypocotyl plant cells

- 27 June 2017
An automated image-based, network-driven framework is developed to accurately segment and quantify actin cytoskeletal structures and Golgi transport and suggests that the erratic movement of Golgi is a stable cellular phenomenon that might optimize distribution efficiency of cell material. Expand
Plant Science's Next Top Models.
The model plants described here represent a step forward towards the goal to explore and comprehend the diversity of plant form and function, and the constant development of novel technologies in molecular biology and bioinformatics is already paving the way for the next generation of plant models.
