(2022): Endocytic trafficking promotes vacuolar enlargements for fast cell expansion rates in plants
ELIFE. 2022; 11, e75945 FullText FullText_BOKU

The vacuole has a space-filling function, allowing a particularly rapid plant cell expansion with very little increase in cytosolic content (Lofke et al., 2015; Scheuring et al., 2016; Dunser et al., 2019). Despite its importance for cell size determination in plants, very little is known about the mechanisms that define vacuolar size. Here, we show that the cellular and vacuolar size expansions are coordinated. By developing a pharmacological tool, we enabled the investigation of membrane delivery to the vacuole during cellular expansion. Our data reveal that endocytic membrane sorting from the plasma membrane to the vacuole is enhanced in the course of rapid root cell expansion. While this 'compromise' mechanism may theoretically at first decelerate cell surface enlargements, it fuels vacuolar expansion and, thereby, ensures the coordinated augmentation of vacuolar occupancy in dynamically expanding plant cells.
