Arabinogalactan proteins (AGPs) are a diverse class of highly glycosylated plant cell surface proteoglycans. They are discussed as signal molecules participating in cell-cell interaction or cellular signalling during morphogenetic processes. AGPs are abundant in the stigma and transmitting tissue of different flowering plants, and are supposed to play an important role in pollen tube adhesion and guidance. In the present work we localized two epitopes of AGPs using the monoclonal antibody JIM 8…

Arabinogalactan proteins: rising attention from plant biologists
TLDR
An overview of the most important studies made in the study of AGPs, focusing on the latest advances and the possibilities for future studies in the field, are presented.
Arabinogalactan proteins_ Distribution during the development of male and female gametophytes
TLDR
The aim of this work was to gather and describe the most important information on the distribution of AGPs in gametophyte development and the mechanism of action, the heterogeneous molecule structure, and the connection with other extracellular matrix components have not been sufficiently explained.
Arabinogalactan proteins and pectin distribution during female gametogenesis in Quercus suber L.
TLDR
The labelling obtained with anti-AGP and anti-pectin mAbs in Q. suber female gametogenesis shows that AGPs and pectic HG can work as markers for mapping gametophytic cell differentiation in this species.
DISTRIBUTION OF ARABINOGALACTAN PROTEINS DURING MICROSPOROGENESIS IN THE ANTHER OF BELLIS PERENNIS L. (ASTERACEAE)
TLDR
Callose, revealed by mAb, appeared at the same stage of microsporocyte division as AGPs labelled with JIM13 and JIM15 and the possible role of the latter during anther development is discussed.
Cellular localization and levels of pectins and arabinogalactan proteins in olive (Olea europaea L.) pistil tissues during development: implications for pollen–pistil interaction
TLDR
The aim of this work was to study the level, whole-organ distribution, and subcellular localization of pectins and arabinogalactan proteins (AGPs) in the olive developing pistil.
Immunodetection of some pectic, arabinogalactan proteins and hemicellulose epitopes in the micropylar transmitting tissue of apomictic dandelions (Taraxacum, Asteraceae, Lactuceae)
TLDR
The results point to the similar distribution of AGPs in different developmental stages, the absence of highly methyl-esterified homogalacturonan (HG) in transmitting tissue of ovule containing a mature embryo sac and the appearance of this pectin domain in the young seed containing the embryo and endosperm in apomictic Taraxacum.
Arabinogalactan proteins and arabinan pectins abound in the specialized matrices surrounding female gametes of the fern Ceratopterisrichardii
TLDR
It is demonstrated that AGPs, but not pectins, are abundant in the matrix around egg cells and degrading neck canal and ventral canal cells during archegonial development, suggesting that they are important in both egg maturation and gamete fusion.

Immunolocalization of arabinogalactan proteins inAmaranthus hypochondriacus L. ovules
TLDR
The expression of these arabinogalactan proteins in this ovule seems to be closely aligned with the pathway of the pollen tube, possibly providing directional guides for tube growth inside the ovule.
Localisation and expression of arabinogalactan-proteins in the ovaries of Nicotiana alata Link and Otto
TLDR
The transmitting-tissue cells of the style of flowering plants secrete a complex extracellular matrix through which pollen tubes grow to the ovary to effect fertilisation, and AGPs from the Ovary of Nicotiana alata were found to be developmentally regulated.
Developmentally regulated epitopes of cell surface arabinogalactan proteins and their relation to root tissue pattern formation.
TLDR
The panel of anti-AGP monoclonal antibodies now available indicates groups of cells within the root meristem that may reflect an early pre-pattern of the tissues of the mature root structure and suggests extensive modulation of cell surface AGPs during cell development and the positioning of cellswithin the apex.

TLDR
Although the existing functional evidence is not incontrovertible, it does clearly point to roles for AGPs in vegetative, reproductive, and cellular growth and development as well as programmed cell death and social control.

TLDR
The review focuses on recent evidence that two classes of cell‐surface protein, one consisting largely of proteoglycans and the other of glycoproteins, may function during plant development, with particular reference to the roles of hydrogen peroxide, oxidases, and HRGPs in the processes.
Characterization of carbohydrate structural features recognized by anti-arabinogalactan-protein monoclonal antibodies.
TLDR
Interestingly, the most effective inhibitor of the binding of the monoclonal antibodies MAC207, JIM4 and JIM13 to exudate gum antigens was an acidic trisaccharide, isolated from a partial acid hydrolysate of gum karaya which has the structure: GlcA beta(1-->3) GalA alpha(1)--Rha, determined by a combination of FAB-MS, GC-MS and NMR spectroscopy.
