Coordinated cell divisions and cell expansion are the key processes that command growth in all organisms. The orientation of cell divisions and the direction of cell expansion are critical for normal development. Symmetric divisions contribute to proliferation and growth, while asymmetric divisions initiate pattern formation and differentiation. In plants these processes are of particular importance since their cells are encased in cellulosic walls that determine their shape and lock their… Expand
Regulatory Role of Cell Division Rules on Tissue Growth Heterogeneity
TLDR
It is found that, beyond tissue geometry and topology, cell divisions affect the dynamics of growth, and that their signature is embedded in the statistics of tissue growth. Expand
Spatiotemporal Pattern of Ectopic Cell Divisions Contribute to Mis-Shaped Phenotype of Primary and Lateral Roots of katanin1 Mutant
TLDR
LSFM provided evidence that KATANIN1 is required for the spatiotemporal control of cell divisions and establishment of tissue patterns in living A. thaliana roots and suggested that changes in the cell division pattern and the occurrence of ectopic cell divisions contributed significantly to pleiotropic root phenotypes of ktn1-2 mutant.

Vesicle Dynamics during Plant Cell Cytokinesis Reveals Distinct Developmental Phases1[OPEN]
TLDR
This work combined high spatial and temporal resolution confocal laser scanning microscopy with advanced image-processing tools and fluorescence fluctuation methods and distinguished three distinct phases during cell plate expansion in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) ‘Bright Yellow-2’ cells. Expand
Potential roles for Kinesins at the cortical division site
TLDR
The limited current knowledge of kinesins potentially involved in the steps required for correctly oriented division planes is summarized, considering localization patterns and genetic evidence, and discussing kinesin function in context with interaction partners and cell cycle regulation are discussed. Expand
The simulation model of growth and cell divisions for the root apex with an apical cell in application to Azolla pinnata
TLDR
The simulations indicate that the cell pattern regularity results from cell divisions which are oriented with respect to principal growth directions, essential for maintenance of peri-anticlinal arrangement of cell walls and coordinated growth of merophytes during the development. Expand
The self-organization of plant microtubules in three dimensions enable stable cortical localization and sensitivity to external cues
TLDR
Using a computational model of microtubules enclosed in a three-dimensional space, it is shown that the microtubule network has spontaneous configurations that could explain many experimental observations without resorting to specific regulation. Expand
The self-organization of plant microtubules inside the cell volume yields their cortical localization, stable alignment, and sensitivity to external cues
TLDR
This work introduces an agent model of microtubules enclosed in a three-dimensional volume and shows that the microtubule network has spontaneous aligned configurations that could explain many experimental observations without resorting to specific regulation. Expand
Signaling Pathway that Controls Plant Cytokinesis.
TLDR
Recent advancements for understanding how the activation of this pathway can be specified in the late stage of the M phase and how this MAPK cascade can control cytokinesis through MT turnover are reviewed. Expand
Title : The self-organization of plant microtubules in three dimensions enable stable cortical localization and sensitivity to external cues Short title : Three-dimensional self-organization of plant microtubules
Many cell functions rely on the ability of microtubules to self-organize as complex networks. In plants, cortical microtubules are essential to determine cell shape as they guide the deposition ofExpand
Microtubule nucleation and establishment of the mitotic spindle in vascular plant cells.
TLDR
The goal of this review is to summarize and discuss current knowledge regarding the mechanisms involved in plant spindle assembly during early mitotic events, and the functions of the proteins currently characterized at microtubule nucleation sites and involved in spindleAssembly are considered.

Universal rule for the symmetric division of plant cells
TLDR
This work shows that the selection of the plane of division involves a competition between alternative configurations whose geometries represent local area minima and posit that the new rule represents the default mechanism for plant cell division when internal or external cues are absent. Expand
Determination of symmetric and asymmetric division planes in plant cells.
TLDR
Recent work is beginning to shed light on polarization mechanisms in asymmetrically dividing cells, with receptor-like proteins and potential downstream effectors emerging as important players in this process. Expand
Coordination of plant cell division and expansion in a simple morphogenetic system
TLDR
The study showed that a simple set of autonomous, cell-based rules are sufficient to account for the morphological and dynamic properties of Coleochaete growth and a variety of morphogenetic behavior emerged from the application of these local rules. Expand
Normal differentiation patterns in plants lacking microtubular preprophase bands
TLDR
Different mutants in Arabidopsisthat are unable to form these two cortical microtubular arrays are described, and surprisingly, the mutations do not affect differentiation patterns: all cell types and organs are in their correct relative positions. Expand
Cell shape and cell division.
TLDR
Analysis of early embryo development and tissue morphogenesis has highlighted the role of the spatial distribution of cortical cues able to guide spindle orientation, and recent data support the possibility that the orientation of cell division in mammalian cells is dominated by cell adhesion and the associated traction forces developed in interphase.

Influence of Cell Geometry on Division-Plane Positioning
TLDR
A simple computational model is developed that quantitatively predicts division-axis orientation probability for a wide variety of cell shapes, even in multicellular contexts, and estimates scaling exponents for length-dependent microtubule forces. Expand
Asymmetric cell division in land plants and algae: the driving force for differentiation
TLDR
Several key regulators are used for different developmental processes, and common mechanisms can be recognized, indicating a mechanistic overview of asymmetric cell division in plants and algae. Expand
Determining the position of the cell division plane
TLDR
By inducing mammalian tissue cells with monopolar spindles to enter anaphase, it is shown that furrow formation in cultured mammalian cells does not require a bipolar spindle and is consistent with a model in which chromosomes supply microtubules with factors that promote microtubule stability and furrowing.

The Tangled1 Gene Is Required for Spatial Control of Cytoskeletal Arrays Associated with Cell Division during Maize Leaf Development
TLDR
The analysis leads to the conclusion that Tan1 is required both for the positioning of cytoskeletal arrays that establish planes of cell division during prophase and for spatial guidance of expanding phragmoplasts toward preestablished cortical division sites during cytokinesis. Expand
Control of the Mitotic Cleavage Plane by Local Epithelial Topology
TLDR
It is shown that the polygonal shapes of individual cells can systematically bias the long-axis orientations of their adjacent mitotic neighbors, and that cleavage-plane bias may be a widespread property ofpolygonal cell sheets in plants and animals. Expand
