Abstract. The objectives of this study were to define cell structure during pine secondary xylem development and to integrate this information with current knowledge of the biochemistry and physiology of secondary cell wall biosynthesis in gymnosperms. Lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia Englem.) cambium and secondary xylem were cryofixed using high pressure freezing and freeze-substitution which allowed excellent preservation of the cell structure of developing secondary xylem and… Expand
Secondary cell wall deposition in developing secondary xylem of poplar.
TLDR
To observe the cellular structures associated with secondary wall production, cryofixed fibers were examined with transmission electron microscopy during differentiation and there were abundant cortical microtubules and endomembrane activity in cells during the intense phase of secondary cell wall synthesis.

The cell biology of wood formation: from cambial divisions to mature secondary xylem 1
TLDR
The importance of adequately preserving cells of the secondary vas- cular system is illustrated with examples from dormant cambium, cell division, and secondary cell wall deposition. Expand
Diurnal differences in the supply of glucomannans and xylans to innermost surface of cell walls at various developmental stages from cambium to mature xylem in Cryptomeria japonica
TLDR
A diurnal periodicity in the supply of cell wall matrix containing hemicellulose to the innermost surface of developing secondary walls is suggested in Cryptomeria japonica saplings. Expand
The cell biology of secondary cell wall biosynthesis
TLDR
This review puts SCW biosynthesis in a cellular context, with the aim of integrating molecular biology and biochemistry with plant cell biology, and reflects the fact that protoxylem tracheary elements have proven to be the most amenable experimental system in which to study the cell biology of SCWs.

Organization of Xylan Production in the Golgi During Secondary Cell Wall Biosynthesis1[OPEN]
TLDR
A new model where xylan biosynthesis and packaging into secretory vesicles are localized in distinct structural and functional domains of the Golgi is proposed, rather than polysaccharide biosynthesis occurring in the center of the cisternae. Expand
Cellular distribution of coniferin in differentiating xylem of Chamaecyparis obtusa as revealed by Raman microscopy
Abstract Cellular distribution of coniferin in differentiating xylem of Japanese cypress (Chamaecyparis obtusa) was analyzed by Raman microscopy. Small blocks were collected from differentiatingExpand
Ultrastructural Changes in Cambial Cell Derivatives during Xylem Differentiation in Poplar
TLDR
The results indicate an important role for the vacuole in the xylogen differentiation of cambial derivatives in xylogenesis and in vessels and fibres. Expand
A unique program for cell death in xylem fibers of Populus stem.
TLDR
High-resolution microarray analysis in the vascular tissues of Populus stem suggests the involvement of several previously uncharacterized transcription factors, ethylene, sphingolipids and light signaling as well as autophagy in the control of fiber cell death. Expand
Distribution of lignin and lignin precursors in differentiating xylem of Japanese cypress and poplar
Lignin is an integral component of the cell wall of vascular plants. The mechanism of supply of lignin precursors from the cytosol into the cell wall of differentiating xylem has not yet beenExpand
Proton-Dependent Coniferin Transport, a Common Major Transport Event in Differentiating Xylem Tissue of Woody Plants1[W]
Differentiating xylem tissues of both hybrid poplar and Japanese cypress exhibits almost identical transport properties of coniferin, a monolignol glucoside, suggesting the involvement of a commonExpand

TLDR
It is suggested that an acto-myosin contractile system (a 'plant muscle') is present at the cell plate, the sieve pores, the plasmodesmata within the walls of long-lived parenchyma cells, and at the apertures of bordered pits during their development. Expand

TLDR
Investigation of an enzyme system in the xylem of Pinus contorta var latifolia Engelm revealed two major [beta]-glucosidases that efficiently hydrolyzed the native substrate, coniferin, and one was more active against synthetic glucosides. Expand

TLDR
Investigation of cell plate formation in tobacco root tips and synchronized dividing suspension cultured tobacco BY-2 cells indicated that callose is the predominant lumenal component of forming cell plates and that it forms a coat-like structure on the membrane surface, suggesting that excess membrane material may be recycled in a selective manner.
