We recently showed that treatment with actin antagonists perturbed stomatal behavior in Commelina communis L. leaf epidermis and therefore suggested that dynamic changes in actin are necessary for signal responses in guard cells (M. Kim, P.K. Hepler, S.O. Eun, K.-S. Ha, Y. Lee [1995] Plant Physiol 109: 1077-1084). Here we show that actin filaments of guard cells, visualized by immunofluorescence microscopy, change their distribution in response to physiological stimuli. When stomata were open… CONTINUE READING
