Abstract: As one of the major members of cytoskeleton, microtubules play important roles in plant growth and deve- lopment. Hypocotyl has become a model system to study cell elongation, which is regulated by multiple internal and ex- ternal signalings. Here, we reviewed the recent research progress for the roles of microtubules in regulating the hypocotyl elongation in response to diversed environmental and developmental cues, which will extend our understanding on how microtubules response to the upstream signal and play roles in the elongation of plant hypocotyls.

Key words: microtubule, hypocotyl, elongation, environmental signals, growth and developmental cues
