The plant cytoskeleton

Curr Opin Cell Biol. 1994 Feb;6(1):10-5. doi: 10.1016/0955-0674(94)90110-4.

Abstract

Particles that can nucleate microtubules in vitro have been isolated from higher plant cells. Observations of living cells injected with fluorescent probes have improved our understanding of plant cytoskeleton dynamics. Despite growing recognition of the need for biochemical studies on cytoskeleton-associated proteins, little progress has been made in this field in the past year, although plant lamins have been isolated and partially characterized.
