The elongation of Arabidopsis hypocotyls is regulated by many factors such as light, phytohormones, transcription factors and the cytoskeleton. Microtubule is a member of cytoskeleton which plays an important role in hypocotyls elongation. The organization and dynamics of microtubules are regulated by microtubule associated proteins (MAPs). Recent years, several MAPs involve in the regulation of hypocotyls elongation mediated by upstream signals are identified. This review summarizes the recent progress and classifies the MAPs participate in the regulation of hypocotyls elongation into two categories, the positive and negative regulators.
