Abstract [en]

Xylem is essential for transporting water and minerals transport as well as for mechanical resistance against gravity. These key characteristics of xylem are enabled by the development of specific secondary cell walls which exhibit different patterns of thickening. Microtubules are associated with the sites at which the secondary thickenings develop and pharmacological and genetic modulation demonstrate that these cortical microtubules control the orientation, the patterning, the symmetry and the smoothness of the secondary wall.
