Cell biology and genetics of root hair formation in Arabidopsis thaliana.

Abstract:

In this review we integrate the information available on the cell biology of root hair formation with recent findings from the analysis of root hair mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana. The mature Arabidopsis root epidermis consists of root-hair-producing cells and non-root-hair-producing cells. Root hair growth begins with a swelling of the outer epidermal wall. It has been postulated that this is due to a pH-mediated localised cell wall loosening. From the bulge a single root hair emerges which...
