Fractionation of carbohydrates in Arabidopsis root cell walls shows that three radial swelling loci are specifically involved in cellulose production.

Peng, L; Hocart, Charles; Redmond, J; Williamson, Richard


Three non-allelic radial swelling mutants (rsw1, rsw2 and rsw3) of Arabidopsis thaliana L. Heynh. were shown to be specifically impaired in cellulose production. Fractionation methods that identify, characterise and quantify some of the major cell wall polysaccharides in small quantities of seedlings demonstrated that changes in the production of cellulose are much more pronounced than changes in the production of non-cellulosic polysaccharides. A crude cell wall pellet was sequentially...[Show more]
