Microtubule-associated proteins in plants--why we need a MAP.

Author information

  • 1Department of Cell Biology, John Innes Centre, Colney, Norwich NR4 7UH, UK.


Plants have four main microtubule assemblies. Three are involved in arranging when and where the cell wall is laid down and have no direct homologues in animals. Microtubule-associated proteins are important components of these assemblies, and we are now starting to uncover what these proteins are and how they might work.
