How land plants regulate tissue development and organogenesis

Conserved signaling molecules, called RHO GTPases, define where growth occurs on the surface of eukaryotic cells. Researchers from the Dolan group at GMI discovered how “RHO GTPase of plants” – called ROP proteins for short – coordinate cell growth and division during tissue development and organ formation in land plants. The findings were published on June 28 in Current Biology.
