This review covers the data concerning the relationship between cell growth and aquaporins in the cell membranes, the plasmalemma and tonoplast. Genes of aquaporins, water channel-forming proteins, are actively expressed before the onset and during cell elongation, thus providing accumulation of aquaporin protein and higher membrane hydraulic conductivity. As a result, an additional water uptake favors cell vacuolation and elongation. The review gives information on all growing plant organs. In actively dividing plant cells, only plasmalemma aquaporins are synthesized, whereas in elongating cells, tonoplast aquaporins are synthesized as well. The review includes also the findings of aquaporin research after growth completion.
