They might be involved in the regulation of MAPs like MAP65 or molecular motors like TPRK125 (78,79), which are also located at the midplane of cell division and contain potential cdc2 phosphorylation sites. Several other proteins including protein kinases have been localized to the growing cell plate in plants, but their precise functions remain to be determined. It seems likely that a complex regulatory network oversees the final step of mitosis, which ultimately severs a cell into two. The Plant Cell Cycle 43 5.

At the cortex, these microtubules may be organized into the highly dynamic arrays typical of interphase cells. 4. Molecular Control of the Plant Cell Cycle This section will briefly review our current understanding of key transitions during the cell cycle. Although the cycle is regulated at numerous stages, extracellular growth signals appear to act at two main points, G1/S and G2/M. The nature of these signals and their effects depends on the tissue and developmental stage. Auxin, for example, is the main positive proliferative signal during lateral root formation, but cytokinin is the dominant one in the shoot meristem.
