Molecular characterization of a zygote wall protein: an extensin-like molecule in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.


The green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii elaborates two biochemically and morphologically distinct cell walls during its life cycle: one surrounds the vegetative and gametic cell and the other encompasses the zygote. Hydroxyproline-rich glycoproteins (HRGPs) constitute a major component of both walls. We describe the isolation and characterization of a… (More)
