The Plant Cell Wall
Edited by Jocelyn Rose
In the last few years, the new analytical tools associated with molecular biology, biochemistry, spectroscopy,
microscopy, immunology, genomics and proteomics have been employed to investigate plant cell wall structure
and function, providing a degree of resolution that was, until recently, unattainable. This has resulted in a growing
awareness of the critical role of plant cell walls in a broad range of developmental events, adding strength and
diversity to cell wall-related scientific research.
Hardback 400 pp, 61 ills. ISBN 9781841273280
This volume provides an overview of our current understanding of plant cell walls, drawing on the recent advances
of plant molecular biology. It incorporates the identification of a rapidly growing number of genes and the proteins
responsible for plant wall synthesis, restructuring, degradation and wall-associated signal transduction. The book
bridges the biochemistry-oriented cell wall literature and the new technology-driven approaches.
This is a book for academic and industrial researchers in plant cell biology, biochemistry, developmental biology,
genetics and molecular biology.
