  • Bioinformatic identification and analysis of extensins in the plant kingdom 

    Liu, Xiao; Wolfe, Richard; Welch, Lonnie R.; Domozych, David S.; Popper, Zoë A.; Showalter, Allan M. (Public Library of Science, 2016-02-26)
    Extensins (EXTs) are a family of plant cell wall hydroxyproline-rich glycoproteins (HRGPs) that are implicated to play important roles in plant growth, development, and defense. Structurally, EXTs are characterized by the ...
  • Charophytes: evolutionary giants and emerging model organisms 

    Domozych, David S.; Popper, Zoë A.; Sørensen, Iben (Frontiers Media, 2016-10-10)
    Charophytes are the group of green algae whose ancestral lineage gave rise to land plants in what resulted in a profoundly transformative event in the natural history of the planet. Extant charophytes exhibit many features ...
  • Evolution and diversity of plant cell walls: from algae to flowering plants 

    Popper, Zoë A.; Gurvan, Michel; Hervé, Cécile; Domozych, David S.; Willats, William G.T.; Tuohy, Maria G.; Kloareg, Bernard; Stengel, Dagmar B. (Annual Reviews, 2011-02-22)
    All photosynthetic multicellular Eukaryotes, including land plants and algae, have cells that are surrounded by a dynamic, complex, carbohydrate-rich cell wall. The cell wall exerts considerable biological and biomechanical ...
  • Pectin metabolism and assembly in the cell wall of the charophyte green alga penium margaritaceum 

    Domozych, David S.; Sørensen, Iben; Popper, Zoë A.; Ochs, Julie; Andreas, Amanda; Fangel, Jonatan U.; Pielach, Anna; Sacks, Carly; Brechka, Hannah; Ruisi-Besares, Pia; Willats, William G.T.; Rose, Jocelyn K.C. (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 ...
