Mechanical effects of turgor pressure on cell walls were simulated by deforming cell wall analogues based on Acetobacter xylinus cellulose under equi-biaxial tension. This experimental set-up, with associated modelling, allowed quantitative information to be obtained on cellulose alone and in composites with pectin and/or xyloglucan. Cellulose was the main load-bearing component, pectin and xyloglucan leading to a decrease in modulus when incorporated. The cellulose-only system could be… CONTINUE READING
