Plant Cell Growth: Do Pectins Drive Lobe Formation in Arabidopsis Pavement Cells?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Pectins are conventionally thought to form a gel-like matrix between stress-bearing cellulose microfibrils in growing plant cell walls. A new study proposes a more active role in driving wall expansion. How does the proposal stack up against current evidence?
