Interaction of auxin, light, and mechanical stress in orienting microtubules in relation to tropic curvature in the epidermis of maize coleoptiles


Changes in the orientation of cortical microtubules (longitudinal vs. transverse with respect to the long cell axis) at the outer epidermal wall of maize coleoptile segments were induced by auxin, red or blue light, and mechanical stresses (cell extension or compression produced by bending). Immunofluorescent techniques were used for the quantitative… (More)
