Differential expression of cell-wall-related genes during the formation of tracheary elements in the Zinnia mesophyll cell system

Differential expression of cell-wall-related genes during the formation of tracheary elements in... Plants, animals and some fungi undergo processes of cell specialization such that specific groups of cells are adapted to carry out particular functions. One of the more remarkable examples of cellular development in higher plants is the formation of water-conducting cells that are capable of supporting a column of water from the roots to tens of metres in the air for some trees. The Zinnia mesophyll cell system is a remarkable tool with which to study this entire developmental pathway in vitro. We have recently applied an RNA fingerprinting technology, to allow the detection of DNA fragments derived from RNA using cDNA synthesis and subsequent PCR-amplified fragment length polymorphisms (cDNA-AFLP), to systematically characterize hundreds of the genes involved in the process of tracheary element formation. Building hoops of secondary wall material is the key structural event in forming functional tracheary elements and we have identified over 50 partial sequences related to cell walls out of 600 differentially expressed cDNA fragments. The Zinnia system is an engine of gene discovery which is allowing us to identify and characterize candidate genes involved in cell wall biosynthesis and assembly. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Plant Molecular Biology Springer Journals
