In vivo analysis of cell division, cell growth, and differentiation at the shoot apical meristem in Arabidopsis.


The aerial parts of the plant are generated by groups of rapidly dividing cells called shoot apical meristems. To analyze cell behavior in these structures, we developed a technique to visualize living shoot apical meristems using the confocal microscope. This method, combined with green fluorescent protein marker lines and vital stains, allows us to follow… (More)
