Phytohormones and Cytoskeleton
Phytohormones are among the principal regulatory molecules in the plant cell, which control essentially all physiological processes in it. Cytoskeleton provides the basics framework for cell architecture, intracellular transport and cell motility, and cell capacity for division. It is the matrix for most biochemical processes and a target for external and internal regulatory signals. Therefore, these two players in the game have a priori to be interrelated, however, there is only limited experimental data to support it. We discuss four levels of this interaction: (1) spatial organization of microtubules (MT) and microfilaments (MF); (2) synthesis and modification of cytoskeletal proteins; (3) cytoskeleton involvement in phytohormone action; and (4) cytoskeleton involvement in processes which are under hormonal control.
