Because the plant epidermis is readily accessible and consists of few cell types on most organs, the epidermis has become a well-studied model for cell differentiation and cell patterning in plants. Recent advances in our understanding of the development of three epidermal cell types, trichomes, root hairs, and stomata, allow a comparison of the underlying patterning mechanisms. In Arabidopsis, trichome development and root epidermal patterning use a common mechanism involving closely related… CONTINUE READING
