In an effort to understand the role of hydroxyproline-rich glycoproteins (HRGPs) in plant cell wall structure, we studied the distribution and physical properties of PC-1-like proteins (PC-1 being the major pericarp HRGP) throughout sporophytic tissues of two maize (Zea mays L.) varieties. We determined total amounts of hydroxyproline, an indicator of HRGPs, and did tissue print and Western blot analysis. We found hydroxyproline in cell walls of stems, leaves, roots, tassels, and silks. We also… CONTINUE READING
