Indirect immunofluorescence using a-tubulin antibodies applied to sections of maize roots prepared using low melting point wax was found to give excellent visualisation of both cortical and endoplasmic microtubule (MT) arrays. This allows, for the first time, these arrays to be investigated in cells of the different tissues at various stages of their growth and development. Many cells in the zone between the mcristem and the cell elongation region develop a highly ordered transversal bundling… CONTINUE READING
