The plant cytoskeleton

Curr Opin Cell Biol. 1991 Feb;3(1):33-42. doi: 10.1016/0955-0674(91)90163-s.


Significant progress has been made in four areas: in appreciating the speed with which cortical microtubules reorient in response to environmental signals; in a consolidated understanding of the cytoskeletal nature of the phragmosome--the device that predicts and structures the division plane in vacuolated cells; in the description of new cytoskeletal proteins; and in reports that herald an attack on the cell cycle control of cytoskeletal organization.
