• Strigolactone regulates shoot development through a core signalling pathway. ﻿

(Company of Biologists, 2016-12-15)
Strigolactones are a recently identified class of hormone that regulate multiple aspects of plant development. The DWARF14 (D14) α/β fold protein has been identified as a strigolactone receptor, which can act through the ...
• Phytochromes function as thermosensors in $\textit{Arabidopsis}$ ﻿

(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2016-11-18)
Plants are responsive to temperature, and some species can distinguish differences of 1°C. In $\textit{Arabidopsis}$, warmer temperature accelerates flowering and increases elongation growth (thermomorphogenesis). However, ...
• A continuous growth model for plant tissue ﻿

(Institute of Physics, 2016-12-01)
Morphogenesis in plants and animals involves large irreversible deformations. In plants, the response of the cell wall material to internal and external forces is determined by its mechanical properties. An appropriate ...
• A Model Analysis of Mechanisms for Radial Microtubular Patterns at Root Hair Initiation Sites ﻿

(Frontiers, 2016-10-28)
Plant cells have two main modes of growth generating anisotropic structures. Diffuse growth where whole cell walls extend in specific directions, guided by anisotropically positioned cellulose fibers, and tip growth, with ...
