Plant Cell Shape: Trafficking Gets Edgy

Ramin Rahni, Kenneth D. Birnbaum

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Polyhedral-shaped plant cells have faces, corners, and edges that can have different material properties. As Kirchhelle et al. (2016) now show, RAB-A5c reveals a trafficking compartment that localizes to the edges where two cell walls meet, with a potential role in mediating local wall stiffness.
