  • Beyond the green: understanding the evolutionary puzzle of plant and algal cell walls 

    Popper, Zoë A.; Tuohy, Maria G. (American Society of Plant Biologists, 2010-04-26)
    Niklas (2000) defined plants as “photosynthetic eukaryotes,” thereby including brown, red, and green macroalgae and microalgae. These groups share several features, including the presence of a complex, dynamic, and ...
  • 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 ...
  • Cell wall evolution and diversity 

    Fangel, Jonatan U.; Ulvskov, Peter; Knox, J. P.; Mikkelsen, Maria Dalgaard; Harholt, Jesper; Popper, Zoë A.; Willats, William G. T. (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 ...
  • The cell walls of pteridophytes and other green plants - a review 

    Popper, Zoë A. (British Pteridological Society, 2006-12-22)
    The cell wall is one of the defining characteristics of plants and is a fundamental component in normal growth and development. Cell wall composition is a potentially valuable source of phylogenetic information as notable ...
  • Ceratopteris richardii (C-Fern): a model for investigating adaptive modification of vascular plant cell walls 

    Leroux, Olivier; Eeckhout, Sharon; Viane, Ronald L. L.; Popper, Zoë A. (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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • High-resolution analysis of parent-of-origin allelic expression in the Arabidopsis endosperm. 

    Donoghue, Mark T. A.; Spillane, Charles (2011)
    Genomic imprinting is an epigenetic phenomenon leading to parent-of-origin specific differential expression of maternally and paternally inherited alleles. In plants, genomic imprinting has mainly been observed in the ...
  • 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 ...
  • Variability of candidate genes, genetic structure and association with sugar accumulation and climacteric behavior in a broad germplasm collection of melon (Cucumis melo L.) 

    Leida, Carmen; Moser, Claudio; Esteras, Cristina; Sulpice, Ronan; Lunn, John E.; de Langen, Frank; Monforte, Antonio J.; Picó, Belen (BioMed Central, 2015-03-19)
    Background: A collection of 175 melon (Cucumis melo L.) accessions (including wild relatives, feral types, landraces, breeding lines and commercial cultivars) from 50 countries was selected to study the phenotypic variability ...
