Introduction

The Characeae are macroscopic algae which grow in fresh and brackish water. Their equisetum-like thallus consists of a regular alteration of groups of small uninucleate cells (nodes) and cylindrical coenocytic internodes which may attain a length of up to 20 cm. The large size of the internodes and their rapid cytoplasmic streaming (up to 100 µm/s) have attracted the attention of plant cell biologists as early as in the 18th century. We use these cells for investigating organelle dynamics and interactions, exo- and endocytosis, polarity establishment and organization of the cytoskeleton in relation to plasma membrane microdomains.
