This volume examines the molecular basis of all aspects of cell division and cytokinesis in plants. It features 19 chapters contributed by world experts in the specific research fields, providing the most comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge on cell division control in plants. The editors are veterans in the field of plant molecular biology and highly respected worldwide.Plants cells are unusual among eukaryotes in that their planes of division are established prior to the onset of mitosis. ... Prior to its disassembly at prometaphase, the PPB functions in more than one way to determine subsequent placement of the new cell wall. ... In contrast to animal cells, where cytokinesis is achieved via contraction of the plasma membrane between daughter nuclei ( cleavage), plantanbsp;...
