Abstract

Epidermal cells of plant roots can locally change the direction of cell wall growth resulting in root hair formation (6). Root hairs grow by apical extension (apical growth or tip growth), and function in the absorption of water and nutrients. Epidermal cells which form a root hair are designated as trichoblasts. Also, pollen tubes, rhizoids (19) and fungal hyphae (26) are characterized by tip extension in their cell wall during growth.
