Self-regulation in tip-growth: the role of cell wall ageing.

Abstract

We develop a model to describe the effect of cell wall ageing on the local expansion rate of tip-growing cells. Starting from an exact equation for the stationary age-distribution of the wall material, we propose a generic measure for the local expansion propensity of the wall if the ageing process is described by a constant rate Poissonian decay process… (More)
