Root hairs are unicellular extensions of specialized epidermis cells. Under limiting conditions, they significantly increase the water and nutrient uptake capacity of plants by enlarging their root surface. Thus far, little is known about the initiation and growth of root hairs in the monocot model species maize. To gain a first insight into the protein… CONTINUE READING
