Signaling molecules, such as ROP/RAC GTPases and their regulators, reactive oxygen species (ROS) and phospholipids, play pivotal roles in the control of tip growth in pollen tubes and root hairs. They are often localized to the apical growing region of these cells, where their functions are tightly interconnected with cytoskeletal rearrangement and polar vesicle trafficking, which participate in tip growth as well as affect the generation and maintenance of the apical growing region.
