Biogenesis of plant fibers

Biogenesis of plant fibers The fiber (in terms of plant biology) is an individual cell characterized by spindle shape, length of up to several centimeters, well developed cell wall, and mechanical function. The review summarizes different, sometimes contradictory view points about duration, segregation and mechanisms of realization of individual stages of fiber biogenesis. Initiation and coordinated and intrusive growth are considered, as well as formation of secondary cell wall, including its gelatinous layers, and senescence. Biogenesis of fibers ontogenetically related to various tissues has been analyzed and the data about marker stage-specific characters of these cells. The data summarized in this review will allow not only deeper understanding the development of cells with such unique characters, but also interpret the growth mechanisms for much more cell types, in which it is more difficult to identify individual stages of biogenesis than in the sclerenchyma fibers.
