Peeking at a plant through the holes in the wall - exploring the roles of plasmodesmata

Lu, Kuan-Ju; Danila, Florence; Cho, Yueh; Faulkner, Christine


Plasmodesmata (PD) are membrane‐lined pores that connect neighbouring plant cells and allow molecular exchange via the symplast. Past studies have revealed the basic structure of PD, some of the transport mechanisms for molecules through PD, and a variety of physiological processes in which they function. Recently, with the help of newly developed technologies, several exciting new features of PD have been revealed. New PD structures were observed during early formation of PD and between phloem...[Show more]
