A reversibly glycosylated polypeptide (RGP1) possibly involved in plant cell wall synthesis: purification, gene cloning, and trans-Golgi localization.
TLDR
Pisum sativum tissue purified from pea tissue provides a polypeptide marker for Golgi membranes that should be useful in plant membrane studies and reveals close homologs of pea RGP1 in Arabidopsis and rice.
An anisotropic-viscoplastic model of plant cell morphogenesis by tip growth.
TLDR
A model of plant cell morphogenesis that is a first attempt at integrating these two processes based on the theories of thin shells and anisotropic viscoplasticity is developed and it is shown that the mechanical anisotropy built into the model is required to account for observed patterns of wall expansion in plant cells.

TLDR
The results raise the possibility that primary auxin action occurs at ER membranes and could represent facilitation of the transfer of hydrogen ions and nascent secretory protein into the ER lumen followed by secretory transport of these products to the cell exterior via the Golgi system.
Estimation of cytoplasmic and vacuolar pH in higher plant cells by 31P NMR
TLDR
The use of 31P nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is used to estimate the pH of vacuole and cytoplasm in maize root tips and it is reported that the pH is lower than previously reported on the basis of 14C-5, 5-dimethyloxazolidine-2, 4-dione distribution.
Light-mediated changes in two proteins found associated with plasma membrane fractions from pea stem sections.
TLDR
Irradiation of etiolated pea (Pisum sativum L.) seedlings with white light affects two proteins, both of monomer molecular mass near 120 kDa, which are probably neither ionic nor, at least for the phosphorylatable protein, the consequence of entrapment of soluble proteins in vesicles formed during tissue extraction.
ISOLATION OF beta-GLUCAN SYNTHETASE PARTICLES FROM PLANT CELLS AND IDENTIFICATION WITH GOLGI MEMBRANES.
TLDR
It is concluded that the synthetase particles from peas that form mainly beta-1,4-glucan from UDPG and GDPG have now been separated from other cell particles by combinations of velocity and isopycnic density gradient centrifugation and are Golgi membranes.
Molecular size and separability features of pea cell wall polysaccharides : implications for models of primary wall structure.
TLDR
Although the macromolecular features of the mentioned polymers individually agree generally with those shown in the widely disseminated sycamore cell primary wall model, the matrix polymers seem to be associated mostly noncovalently rather than in the covalently interlinked meshwork postulated by that model.
Rapid Auxin-induced Decrease in Free Space pH and Its Relationship to Auxin-induced Growth in Maize and Pea.
TLDR
The auxin analogs p-chlorophenoxyisobutyric acid and phenylacetic acid do not stimulate elongation above control levels in maize or pea tissue segments and do not cause a decrease in free space pH in either tissue, consistent with the acid secretion theory of auxin action.
