ASYMMETRIC CELL DIVISION IN PLANTS.

Published

Journal Article

Asymmetric cell divisions generate cells with different fates. In plants, where cells do not move relative to another cell, the specification and orientation of these divisions is an important mechanism to generate the overall cellular pattern during development. This review summarizes our knowledge of selected cases of asymmetric cell division in plants, in the context of recent insights into mechanisms underlying this process in bacteria, algae, yeast, and animals.
