Abstract

Plant cell division occurs mainly in developing tissues and appears to be highly regulated in both space and time. Recently, genetic and molecular analyses have been able to dissect the function of cell proliferation in the processes of growth and development. Mutant studies have shown that plants have a compensatory mechanism whereby increased cell expansion can partially cover for defects in proliferation. Ectopic expression of developmental and cell-cycle regulators has indicated how growth rate is controlled at the molecular level in meristems and lateral organs.
