The root cap is a small tissue located at the tip of the root that protects the root apical meristem and maintains a constant size by coupling cell production with the release of the last layer into the rhizosphere. Based on whether the last layer is released intact or as individual cells, these cells are referred to as border-like cells (BLCs) or border cells (BCs), respectively. BLC/BC separation is an intricate mechanism that is regulated by multiple transcriptional factors, signal peptides, and auxin. BLCs and BCs also have critical roles in root defense against abiotic and biotic stresses. View this paper
