Cell wall evolution and diversity

Metrics details. A number of innovations underlie the origin of rapid reproductive cycles in angiosperms. A critical early step involved the modification of an ancestrally short and slow-growing pollen tube for faster and longer distance transport of sperm to egg. Callose synthesis is mediated by callose synthase CalS. Of 12 CalS gene family members in Arabidopsis , only one CalS5 has been directly linked to pollen tube callose. CalS5 orthologues are present in several monocot and eudicot genomes, but little is known about the evolutionary origin of CalS5 or what its ancestral function may have been. CalS transcripts were detected in pollen tubes of several species within Nymphaeales and Austrobaileyales, and comparative analyses with a phylogenetically diverse group of sequenced genomes indicated homology to CalS5.

Evolution and diversity of plant cell walls: from algae to flowering plants.

A cell wall is a structural layer surrounding some types of cells , just outside the cell membrane. It can be tough, flexible, and sometimes rigid. It provides the cell with both structural support and protection, and also acts as a filtering mechanism. A major function is to act as pressure vessels, preventing over-expansion of the cell when water enters. The composition of cell walls varies between species and may depend on cell type and developmental stage. The primary cell wall of land plants is composed of the polysaccharides cellulose , hemicelluloses and pectin.

These two features are intrinsically interlinked as the development of an adherent cell-wall allowed the transition from cellular autonomy to cellular cooperation, and therefore multicellularity. For land plants we have an extensive understanding of the structures and functions of the cell wall , but such knowledge is scarce in macroalgae. Being evolutionary distant from land plants, marine algae offer attractive models to study the bases of developmental mechanisms in eukaryotes.


All photosynthetic multicellular Eukaryotes, including land plants and algae, have cells that are surrounded by a dynamic, complex, carbohydrate-rich cell wall. This has resulted in compositional variation that is dependent on developmental stage, cell type, and season.

Current challenges in plant cell walls View all 30 Articles. Plant cell walls display a considerable degree of diversity in their compositions and molecular architectures. In some cases the functional significance of a particular cell wall type appears to be easy to discern: secondary cells walls are often reinforced with lignin that provides durability; the thin cell walls of pollen tubes have particular compositions that enable their tip growth; lupin seed cell walls are characteristically thickened with galactan used as a storage polysaccharide. However, more frequently the evolutionary mechanisms and selection pressures that underpin cell wall diversity and evolution are unclear. For diverse green plants chlorophytes and streptophytes the rapidly increasing availability of transcriptome and genome data sets, the development of methods for cell wall analyses which require less material for analysis, and expansion of molecular probe sets, are providing new insights into the diversity and occurrence of cell wall polysaccharides and associated biosynthetic genes.

Although plants and many algae e. Furthermore, wall components have applications within food, fuel, pharmaceuticals, fibres e. As shown in the 27 papers in this Special Issue, as the major deposit of photosynthetically fixed carbon, and therefore energy investment, cell walls are of undisputed importance to the organisms that possess them, the photosynthetic eukaryotes plants and algae. The complexities of cell wall components along with their interactions with the biotic and abiotic environment are becoming increasingly revealed. The importance of plant and algal cell walls and their individual components to the function and survival of the organism, and for a number of industrial applications, are illustrated by the breadth of topics covered in this issue, which includes papers concentrating on various plants and algae, developmental stages, organs, cell wall components, and techniques. Although we acknowledge that there are many alternative ways in which the papers could be categorized and many would fit within several topics , we have organized them as follows: 1 cell wall biosynthesis and remodelling, 2 cell wall diversity, and 3 application of new technologies to cell walls. Finally, we will consider future directions within plant cell wall research.

Но Чатрукьян отказывался прислушаться к голосу разума. У нас вирус. Я звоню Джаббе. Когда он попытался обойти Стратмора, тот преградил ему дорогу. Лестничная площадка, на которой они стояли, была совсем крохотной. Они сцепились.

Он обедает там сегодня с одной из наших сопровождающих.  - Ролдан понимал, что сейчас они скорее всего лежат в постели, но ему не хотелось оскорблять чувства звонившего.  - Оставьте паспорт у администратора, его зовут Мануэль.

 Мисс Флетчер! - раздался изумленный возглас, и Сьюзан увидела на водительском сиденье электрокара, похожего на те, что разъезжают по полям для гольфа, смутно знакомую фигуру. - Господи Иисусе! - воскликнул водитель.  - С вами все в порядке. Мы уж думали, вы все погибли. Сьюзан посмотрела на него отсутствующим взглядом.

Он уверяет, что в шифровалке полный порядок. Сказал, что ТРАНСТЕКСТ работает в обычном темпе. Что у нас неверные данные. Джабба нахмурил свой несоразмерно выпуклый лоб. - В чем же тогда проблема.

Взгляните. Офицер подошел к столу. Кожа на левой руке загорелая, если не считать узкой светлой полоски на мизинце.
