Abstract
  • The overall objective of this research was to determine which, if any, myosin XI proteins and exocyst proteins play a role in growth of Arabidopsis thaliana hypocotyls and root hairs. This involved the study of whether exocyst and myosin proteins work together during cell expansion within these two plant parts. Another objective was to determine why some protein mutants grew shorter hypocotyls or root hairs than the Col-0 Wildtype (WT). To explore the answers to these questions, I performed many hypocotyl and root hair measurements of WT and various protein mutants. The results indicated that shortened hypocotyls are due to shortened cells in the hypocotyls rather than less cells. Results also pointed toward the theory that shortened root hair cells are due to slower growth rather than growth to a certain point before it is stopped.
