The surface of the primary aerial parts of terrestrial plants is covered by a cuticle, which has crucial autecological functions, but also serves as an important interface in trophic interactions. The chemical and physical properties of this layer contribute to these functions. The cuticle is composed of the cuticular layer and the cuticle proper, which is covered by epicuticular waxes. Whereas the cutin fraction is a polyester-type biopolymer composed of hydroxyl and hydroxyepoxy fatty acids… Expand
Structural and Biochemical Properties of Duckweed Surface Cuticle
TLDR
The unique structural and biochemical features of Spirodela frond surfaces with their rapid reproductive cycle and readily availability genome sequence, make duckweed an attractive monocot model for studying the fundamental processes related to plant protection against ultraviolet irradiation, pathogens and other environmental stresses.

Topical Review on Cuticle Synthesis and Function The Formation and Function of Plant Cuticles 1
TLDR
Recent progress in the biochemistry and molecular biology of cuticle synthesis and function is reviewed and some of the major questions that will drive future research in this field are highlighted. Expand
The intimate talk between plants and microorganisms at the leaf surface
TLDR
Current knowledge on the role of the cuticle during the intimate interactions between plants and microorganisms, in particular pathogenic and non-pathogenic bacteria and fungi is explored and new perspectives on the potential use for agriculture are proposed. Expand
Multifunctional Plant Surfaces and Smart Materials
The surfaces of plants represent multifunctional interfaces between the organisms and their biotic (living) and the nonbiotic solid, liquid, and gaseous environment. The diversity of plant surfaceExpand
Cuticular Lipids as a Cross-Talk among Ants, Plants and Butterflies
  • F. Barbero
  • Biology, Medicine

TLDR
The role of CHCs in fostering multilevel relationships among ants, plants and Lepidoptera (primarily butterflies) and basic concepts of myrmecophilous interactions and chemical deception strategies together with chemical composition, biosynthetic pathways and functions ofCHCs as molecular cues of multitrophic systems are provided. Expand
Multifunctional Roles of Plant Cuticle During Plant-Pathogen Interactions
TLDR
Multiple roles of plant cuticle during plant-pathogen interactions and its responses to both leaf and fruit pathogens are described and the challenges thus presented, and future directions of research are discussed. Expand
Surface lipids and plant defenses.
TLDR
The functions of the plant cuticle in host-pathogen interactions are examined, the possibilities of integrating the membrane and cuticular glycerolipid biosynthesis are discussed, and the possible integration of signaling circuits and effector molecules are discussed. Expand
Decomposition and sorption characterization of plant cuticles in soil
The sorption of organic compounds by plant cuticular matter has been extensively investigated; however, little has been studied regarding the effect of plant cuticle degradation on their role in theExpand
The Formation and Function of Plant Cuticles1
TLDR
It has become clear that the physiological role of the cuticle extends well beyond its primary function as a transpiration barrier, playing important roles in processes ranging from development to interaction with microbes. Expand
Physical and Chemical Traits of Grape Varieties Influence Drosophila suzukii Preferences and Performance
TLDR
The results highlight the underestimated role of the epicuticular surface and cuticle integrity in grape susceptibility to D. suzukii and show that even less susceptible varieties became more susceptible after removal of these waxes. Expand

Plant cuticles: Multifunctional interfaces between plant and environment
TLDR
The location at the outer perimeter of plant organs and its rigid appearance, at least in succulents, indicates that the cuticle may function as external structural element that possibly adds mechanical support for tissue integrity and impacts on morphogenetic processes. Expand
The Cuticles of Conifers: Structure, Composition and Transport Properties
The plant cuticle is frequently referred to when the direct effects of air pollutants on the above-ground parts of higher plants are discussed. It covers all primary parts of higher plants and makesExpand

TLDR
The aim was to determine precisely the influence of its biochemical composition on insect host plant selection for oviposition, and the quantities of soluble carbohydrates found within the plant tissues bore a direct relationship to those found on the phylloplane. Expand

Classification and terminology of plant epicuticular waxes
TLDR
A refined classification and terminology of epicuticular waxes is proposed based on high-resolution SEM analysis of at least 13 000 species, representing all major groups of seed plants, and 23 wax types are classified. Expand
Attachment to Plant Surface Waxes by an Insect Predator1
TLDR
The study opens the way for using a similar approach to understand attachment by insects to waxy plant surfaces by examining how EW micromorphology and chemical composition of Brassica oleracea influence attachment by the predatory beetle, Hippodamia convergens. Expand
The Plant Cuticle
TLDR
There is good evidence that the cuticle is penetrated by the attacking pathogen before the sequential steps of disease development are halted by the active defense reactions of the challenged plant. Expand
Protecting against water loss: analysis of the barrier properties of plant cuticles.
TLDR
The bulk of water diffuses as single molecules across a lipophilic barrier while a minor fraction travels along polar pores, and the role the plant cuticle plays in ensuring the survival and reproductive success of an individual plant is indicated. Expand
Leaf cuticular waxes are arranged in chemically and mechanically distinct layers: evidence from Prunus laurocerasus L.
TLDR
The composition and spatial arrangement of cuticular waxes on the leaves of Prunus laurocerasus were investigated and the ecological relevance of this layered structure for recognition by phytotrophic fungi and herbivorous insects that probe the surface composition for sign stimuli is discussed.
