Cell-to-cell communication is vital to the growth and development of multicellularly structured organisms. Recent studies have demonstrated that plants have an endogenous machinery to transport macromolecules such as proteins and nucleic acids between cells through plasmodesmata. Such transport may be a novel means of cell-to-cell signalling. Here, Biao Ding discusses the mechanisms underlying this newly discovered biological function.
