Microtubules are classically described as being transverse, which is perpendicular to the direction of cell elongation. However, fixation studies have indicated that microtubules can be variably aligned across the epidermis of elongating shoots. In addition, microtubules are reported to have different orientations on inner and outer epidermal surfaces, undermining the idea of hoop-reinforcement. Here, long-term movies of Arabidopsis seedlings expressing GFP-TUA6 allowed microtubule alignment to… CONTINUE READING
