CesA1 and CesA3 are thought to occupy noninterchangeable sites in the cellulose synthase making primary wall cellulose in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana L. Heynh). With domain swaps and deletions, we show that sites C terminal to transmembrane domain 2 give CesAs access to their individual sites and, from dominance and recessive behavior, deduce that certain CesA alleles exclude others from accessing each site. Constructs that swapped or deleted N-terminal domains were stably transformed...[Show more]
