Reorientation of microtubules at the outer epidermal wall of maize coleoptiles by phytochrome, blue-light photoreceptor, and auxin


The effects of red and blue light on the orientation of cortical microtubules (MTs) underneath the outer epidermal wall of maize (Zea mays L.) coleoptiles were investigated with immunofluorescent techniques. The epidermal cells of dark-grown coleoptiles demonstrated an irregular pattern of regions of parallel MTs with a random distribution of orientations… (More)
