Specific type of secondary cell wall formed by plant fibers

Specific type of secondary cell wall formed by plant fibers The review sums data indicating that, in many plant fibers, the secondary cell wall contains so-called gelatinous layers of peculiar structure along with those of common (xylan) structure. Sometimes these gelatinous layers comprise the main bulk of the cell wall. Key characteristics of gelatinous cell wall are presented and compared with those of classic xylan-type cell wall. The process of gelatinous cell wall formation is considered in detail for flax phloem fibers; several characteristic features of this process were revealed: intense rearrangement of already deposited cell-wall layers, unusual dynamics of Golgi vesicles, the occurrence of the stage-specific polysaccharide with specific properties, high activity of β-galactosidase, and the presence of substantial amount of free galactose.

Abstract

The review sums data indicating that, in many plant fibers, the secondary cell wall contains so-called gelatinous layers of peculiar structure along with those of common (xylan) structure. Sometimes these gelatinous layers comprise the main bulk of the cell wall. Key characteristics of gelatinous cell wall are presented and compared with those of classic xylan-type cell wall. The process of gelatinous cell wall formation is considered in detail for flax phloem fibers; several characteristic features of this process were revealed: intense rearrangement of already deposited cell-wall layers, unusual dynamics of Golgi vesicles, the occurrence of the stage-specific polysaccharide with specific properties, high activity of β-galactosidase, and the presence of substantial amount of free galactose. Similarity and differences in the gelatinous cell wall formation in the fibers of various plant species are discussed.
