Mutants at the BOTERO1 locus are affected in anisotropic growth in all non-tip-growing cell types examined. Mutant cells are shorter and broader than those of the wild type. Mutant inflorescence stems show a dramatically reduced bending modulus and maximum stress at yield. Our observations of root epidermis cells show that the cell expansion defect in bot1 is correlated with a defect in the orientation of the cortical microtubules. We found that in cells within the apical portion of the root… CONTINUE READING
