9780124537705: The Cytoskeletal Basis of Plant Growth and Form

Factors affecting the shape of plant cells have been studied since the last century and are increasingly described in molecular terms. At the cellular level it is now known that shape is controlled by interactions between the cytoskeleton and the cell wall. This book concentrates on the nature of this relationship and its place in the developmental program.
Chapters are relatively short and summarize progress over the last decade brought about by advances in cellular and molecular techniques. The contents are organized from molecular, through cellular, to developmental aspects which are grouped according to major themes such as "Molecules of the Cytoskeleton", "Directional Cell Expansion" and "The Cytoskeleton in Development". Each section opens with an editorial overview.
The comprehensive nature of the book helps make it an indispensable reference for researchers and advanced students in plant cell and molecular biology.
