Today's plant biologists are increasingly using the root hair as a model for investigating cell and molecular biology. This book focuses on the four major aspects of those investigations - cell biology, physiology, genetics, and symbiosis - with detailed explanations of concomitant techniques.
Root Hair Ultrastructure and Tip Growth.- The Role of Microtubules in Root Hair Growth and Cellulose Microfibril The Root Hair Actin Cytoskeleton as Backbone, Highway, Morphogenetic Instrument and Target for Signalling.- Cell Cleaving: A Method for Studying the Extracellular Matrix-Cytoskeleton-Plasma Membrane Continuum in Root Hairs.- Advanced Fluorescence Microspectroscopic Methods for the Study of Single Living Root Hairs.- Molecules at the Tips of Root Hairs.- Hormonal Control of Root Hair Growth and Development.- Electrobiology of Root Hairs.- Calcium in Root Hair Growth.- pH Regulation in and by Root Hairs.- Evidence for the Uptake of Non-Essential Ions and Essential Nutrient Ions by Root Hairs and Their Effect on Root Hair Development.- Specification of Root Hair Cells.- Root Hair Genes.- Infection of Root Hairs by Rhizobia: Infection Thread Development with Emphasis on the Microtubular Cytoskeleton.- Nod-Factors in Symbiotic Development of Root Hairs.- Rhizobium-Induced Plant Gene Expression in Root Hairs.- The Involvement of Root Hairs in Mycorrhizal Associations.- Root Hair-Frankia Interactions in Actinorhizal Symbioses.
