The effects of tensile stress and temperature on cell wall elasticity have been investigated in the outer cell walls of coleoptile epidermis of 4- and 6-day-old Zea mays L. seedlings. The change in tensile stress from 6 to 40 MPa caused the increase in cell wall elastic modulus from 0.4 to 3 GPa. Lowering the temperature from 30 to 4 °C resulted in(More)
Changes in extensibility of cell walls and composition of apoplastic solution along the elongation zone were studied in mesocotyls of etiolated seedlings of maize (Zea mays L.). It was found that plastic and elastic extensibility of cell walls was much greater in the cells with a high rate of elongation. Basipetal decrease in hydrogen peroxide concentration(More)
