Cell wall evolution and diversity
(Frontiers Media, 2012-07-06)
Plant cell walls display a considerable degree of diversity in their compositions and molecular architectures. In some cases the functional significance of a particular cell wall type appears to be easy to discern: secondary ...
Pectin metabolism and assembly in the cell wall of the charophyte green alga penium margaritaceum
(American Society of Plant Biologists, 2014-03-20)
The pectin polymer homogalacturonan (HG) is a major component of land plant cell walls and is especially abundant in the middle lamella. Current models suggest that HG is deposited into the wall as a highly methylesterified ...
Ceratopteris richardii (C-Fern): a model for investigating adaptive modification of vascular plant cell walls
(Frontiers Media, 2013-09-23)
Plant cell walls are essential for most aspects of plant growth, development, and survival, including cell division, expansive cell growth, cell-cell communication, biomechanical properties, and stress responses. Therefore, ...
