Plant cytoskeleton consists of two major protein networks, actin microfilaments (AFs) and microtubules (MTs). Being important for the integrity of cytoplasm and endomembrane dynamics, these networks perform numerous functions that are essential for cell division and morphogenesis. One of the most frequently asked question is to what extent and how AFs and MTs cooperate. Besides largely indirect interactions between AFs and MTs, past two decades contributed to the identification of plant homologs of proteins interacting with both AFs and MTs and some plant-specific proteins have been described as well. However, their developmental roles were only partially uncovered. This topic could serve as a platform for the publication of experimental data identifying new interactors between MTs and AFs as well as for the description of new functions for interactors that have been found recently. Moreover, reports on the cooperation between AFs and MTs in the regulation of cell division and morphogenesis, biogenesis of cell wall, transport of ions and hormones across plasma membrane and intracellular trafficking are highly welcome. The topic could accommodate all types of articles, i.e. original contributions, new methods and reviews.
