The Plant Cytoskeleton; Preface; Contents; Contributors; Part I Molecular Basis of the Plant Cytoskeleton; Chapter 1: Actin Functions in the Cytoplasmic and Nuclear Compartments; Chapter 2: Plant Myosins; Chapter 3: Actin-Binding Proteins and Actin Dynamics in Plant Cells; Chapter 4: Microtubule Nucleation and Organization in Plant Cells; Chapter 5: Microtubule Plus End-Tracking Proteins and Their Activities in Plants; Chapter 6: Microtubule Motor Proteins in the Eukaryotic Green Lineage: Functions and Regulation; Part II Cytoskeletal Reorganization in Plant Cell Division. Plant cells house highly dynamic cytoskeletal networks of microtubules and actin microfilaments. They constantly undergo remodeling to fulfill their roles in supporting cell division, enlargement, and differentiation. Following early studies on structural aspects of the networks, recent breakthroughs have connected them with more and more intracellular events essential for plant growth and development. Advanced technologies in cell biology (live-cell imaging in particular), molecular genetics, genomics, and proteomics have revolutionized this field of study. Stories summarized in this book may.
