      SUMMARY A living cell is not an aggregate of molecules but an organized pattern, structured in space and in time. This article addresses some conceptual issues in the genesis of spatial architecture, including how molecules find their proper location in cell space, the origins of supramolecular order, the role of the genes, cell morphology, the continuity of cells, and the Cited by:   Multicellular organisms contain a large number of formins; however, their physiological roles in plants remain poorly understood. Here, we reveal that formin homology 5 (FH5), a type II formin mutated in rice morphology determinant (rmd), plays a crucial role in determining rice (Oryza sativa) morphology. FH5/RMD encodes a formin-like protein consisting of an N-terminal phosphatase tensin Cited by:

      Contractile force generation: from molecules to tissues. While D'Arcy Thompson dismissed ʻthe many theories and speculations which would connect the phenomena of surface-tension with contractility [and] muscular movement' (p. , Thompson, ), we now understand that this connection is r, the tension at cell surfaces is not driven by surface tension, as Cited by: The female reproductive organ of angiosperms, the gynoecium, often consists of the fusion of multiple ovule-bearing carpels. It serves the important function of producing and protecting ovules as well as mediating pollination. The gynoecium has likely contributed to the tremendous success of angiosperms over their million year history. In addition, being a highly complex plant organ, the Cited by:

Since the late s, the determination of growth and differentiation by soluble growth factor-mediated cell-cell signaling has been acknowledged to be the mechanism of by:   Hippo signaling is a critical pathway that integrates extrinsic and intrinsic mechanical cues to regulate organ size. Despite its essential role in organogenesis, little is known about its role in cell fate specification and differentiation. Here, we unravel a novel and unexpected role of the Hippo pathway effector Taz (wwtr1) in controlling the size, shape and fate of a unique cell in the Cited by: 6.

Cell–cell contacts change the shape of cells such that they are no longer spherical. Single cells, such as mouse embryonic cells at the two-cell stage with a b-catenin mutation that disrupts E Cited by: Morphogenesis (from the Greek morphê shape and genesis creation, literally, "beginning of the shape") is the biological process that causes an organism to develop its shape.

It is one of three fundamental aspects of developmental biology along with the control of cell growth and cellular differentiation, unified in evolutionary developmental biology (evo-devo). Sagner, in Methods in Cell Biology, Abstract.

Morphogenesis of an epithelial tissue emerges from the behavior of its constituent cells, including changes in shape, rearrangements, and divisions. In many instances the directionality of these cellular events is controlled by the polarized distribution of specific molecular components.

The cell surface looks pretty much the same in all cell types, and many early investigators thought that the cell surface was not even a living part of the cell. We now know that each type of cell has a different set of proteins in its surfaces, and that some of these differences are responsible for forming the structure of the tissues and Cited by: 2.

Paul W. Finch, Jeffrey S. Rubin, in Advances in Cancer Research, D Branching Morphogenesis. Epithelial branching morphogenesis is a highly coordinated process involving cell proliferation, cell–cell and cell–matrix interactions, and remodeling of the basement membrane.

A number of studies have demonstrated that KGF can stimulate growth and branching morphogenesis in various fetal. The book starts with a discussion of molecular self-assembly and its limitations before moving on to the cytoskeleton in all its richness.

There are then chapters on the shapes of cells and plant morphogenesis (a novel area for me) before the book really gets into its stride with a long section on cell migration, which covers the intracellular Author: Jonathan Bard.

This book provides an overview of critical components of cell signaling machinery and its role in epithelial morphogenesis, proliferation, invasions and angiogenesis in human cancer and discusses.

Heavily sialylated adhesion molecules found on leukocytes and cells in the nervous system. These molecules are usually large and strongly negatively charged, so they tend to prevent other cells from approaching and interacting, unless the other cell has specific receptors for the sialoadhesin, or, alternatively, other pairs of adhesion molecules that mediate cell-cell interactions are present.

Little is known about endocardial chamber morphogenesis. Dietrich et al. show that the endocardium is flow sensitive and has a role in adapting heart chamber growth in response to the mechanical stimulus of blood flow.

The matrix on a cell surface will be changed after each cell event according to the rule(s) dictated by the morphogenetic field of an organism. Finally, we provide some ideas about the connection between the morphogenetic code on the cell surface, cell motion law(s), and the geometry of.

To understand the role of crystalline cellulose during lobe development, we investigated pavement cell shape in cotyledons of wild-type Arabidopsis and of the any1 mutant (Fig.
