Article
Wstęp Auksyna kontroluje szeroki zakres procesów zachodzących podczas ontogenezy rośliny, m.in.: stymulowanie podziałów komórkowych kambium, wzrost wydłuŜeniowy komórek, róŜnicowanie się tkanek przewodzących, tworzenie korzeni bocznych [DAVIES 2004]. Unikalną właściwością auksyny jest jej polarny transport, kontrolowany przez białka PIN odpowiedzia...

The polar, sub-cellular localization of PIN auxin efflux carriers determines the direction of intercellular auxin flow, thus defining the spatial aspect of auxin signalling. Dynamic, transcytosis-like relocalizations of PIN proteins occur in response to external and internal signals, integrating these signals into changes in auxin distribution. Her...
Article
Cell polarity manifested by the polar cargo delivery to different plasma-membrane domains is a fundamental feature of multicellular organisms. Pathways for polar delivery have been identified in animals; prominent among them is transcytosis, which involves cargo movement between different sides of the cell [1]. PIN transporters are prominent polar...

Plant development is characterized by a profound ability to regenerate and form tissues with new axes of polarity. An unsolved question concerns how the position within a tissue and cues from neighboring cells are integrated to specify the polarity of individual cells. The canalization hypothesis proposes a feedback effect of the phytohormone auxin...

Intercellular flow of the phytohormone auxin underpins multiple developmental processes in plants. Plant-specific pin-formed (PIN) proteins and several phosphoglycoprotein (PGP) transporters are crucial factors in auxin transport–related development, yet the molecular function of PINs remains unknown. Here, we show that PINs mediate auxin efflux fr...

Polar flow of the phytohormone auxin requires plasma membrane-associated PIN proteins and underlies multiple developmental processes in plants. Here we address the importance of the polarity of subcellular PIN localization for the directionality of auxin transport in Arabidopsis thaliana. Expression of different PINs in the root epidermis revealed...
Article

Root gravitropism describes the orientation of root growth along the gravity vector and is mediated by differential cell elongation in the root meristem. This response requires the coordinated, asymmetric distribution of the phytohormone auxin within the root meristem, and depends on the concerted activities of PIN proteins and AUX1 - members of th...
Article
Full-text available
There is a growing demand for methods that allow rapid and reliable in situ localization of proteins in plant cells. The immunocytochemistry protocol presented here can be used routinely to observe protein localization patterns in tissue sections of various plant species. This protocol is especially suitable for plant species with more-complex tiss...
Article
Plant development displays an exceptional plasticity and adaptability that involves the dynamic, asymmetric distribution of the phytohormone auxin. Polar auxin flow, which requires polarly localized transport facilitators of the PIN family, largely contributes to the establishment and maintenance of the auxin gradients. Functionally overlapping act...
Article
Using the radiometric method, the activity of acetylcholinesterase (AChE, E.C. 3.1.1.7) was studied in seedlings of wild type (WT) and of phytochrome mutants of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.). The activity of this enzyme was inhibited by an excess of substrate and by two well-known inhibitors of animal AChE, eserine and neostigmine. The act...

Full-text available
Biochemical and genetic studies have identified peptides that play crucial roles in plant growth and development, including defence mechanisms in response to wounding by pests, the control of cell division and expansion, and pollen self-incompatibility. The first two signalling peptides to be described in plants were tomato systemin and phytosulfok...
Article
In contrast to animals, little is known about pattern formation in plants. Physiological and genetic data suggest the involvement of the phytohormone auxin in this process. Here, we characterize a novel member of the PIN family of putative auxin efflux carriers, Arabidopsis PIN4, that is localized in developing and mature root meristems. Atpin4 mut...
Article
Full-text available
Long-standing models propose that plant growth responses to light or gravity are mediated by asymmetric distribution of the phytohormone auxin. Physiological studies implicated a specific transport system that relocates auxin laterally, thereby effecting differential growth; however, neither the molecular components of this system nor the cellular...

Long-standing models propose that plant growth responses to light or gravity are mediated by asymmetric distribution of the phytohormone auxin(1-3). Physiological studies implicated a specific transport system that relocates auxin laterally, thereby effecting differential growth(4); however, neither the molecular components of this system nor the c...

Applying the method of pyrolysis coupled with gas chromatography (PYR-GC) the content of endogenous acetylcholine (ACh) was investigated in the extracts obtained from tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.). Seven-day-old seedlings of wild type (WT) and phytochrome mutants au (aurea), hp (high pigment), fri (far-red light insensitive) and tri (tempo...
