1. How is cortical microtubule organization related to cellulose synthase motility? What is the best evidence that the two patterns are functionally linked?
2. What provides the motive force for the cellulose synthases?
3. What does uncoupling cellulose synthases from cortical microtubules do to their motility? What do you infer from this data?
4. How can this information be used to potentially engineer plant cell walls?
