This microscope image shows the individual cells that make up the root of an Arabidopsis thaliana plant. Highlighted in green is one of the hormone auxin carriers, a protein that has a crucial role in coordinating many growth and behavioural processes in a plant’s life cycle. This hormone is important for gravity perception and regulates the asymmetric growth between the upper and low side of the root.
