Cellulose Synthesis is Required for Deposition of Reticulate Wall Ingrowths in Transfer Cells

Talbot, Mark J.; Wasteneys, Geoffrey; Offler, Christina E; McCurdy, David W

Description

Despite the recognized physiological importance of transfer cells, little is known about how these specialized cells achieve localized deposition of cell wall material, leading to amplification of plasma membrane surface area and enhanced membrane transport capacity. This study establishes that cellulose synthesis is a key early factor in the construction of 'reticulate' wall ingrowths, an elaborate but common form of localized wall deposition characteristic of most transfer cells.
