Wall architecture in the cellulose-deficient rsw 1 mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana: Microfibrils but not microtubules lose their transverse alignment before microfibrils become unrecognizable in the mitotic and elongation zones of roots

Sugimoto, K; Williamson, Richard; Wasteneys, Geoffrey


The rsw1 mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana has a single amino acid substitution in a putative glycosyl transferase that causes a temperature-dependent reduction in cellulose production. We used recently described methods to examine root growth by surface marker particles, cell wall structure by field emission scanning electron microscopy and microtubule alignment by immunofluorescence after the mutant is transferred to its restrictive temperature. We find that raising the temperature quickly...[Show more]
