Functional analysis of the cellulose synthase genes CesA1, CesA2 and CesA3 in Arabidopsis

Burn, Joanne E; Hocart, Charles; Birch, Rosemary; Cork, Ann; Williamson, Richard


Polysaccharide analyses of mutants link several of the glycosyltransferases encoded by the 10 CesA genes of Arabidopsis to cellulose synthesis. Features of those mutant phenotypes point to particular genes depositing cellulose predominantly in either primary or secondary walls. We used transformation with antisense constructs to investigate the functions of CesA2 (AthA) and CesA3 (AthB), genes for which reduced synthesis mutants are not yet available. Plants expressing antisense CesA1 (RSW1)...[Show more]
