Plasmodesmata viewed as specialised membrane adhesion sites

  title={Plasmodesmata viewed as specialised membrane adhesion sites},
  author={Jens Tilsner and Khalid Amari and Lesley Torrance},
A significant amount of work has been expended to identify the elusive components of plasmodesmata (PD) to help understand their structure, as well as how proteins are targeted to them. This review focuses on the role that lipid membranes may play in defining PD both structurally and as subcellular targeting addresses. Parallels are drawn to findings in other areas of research which focus on the lateral segregation of membrane domains and the generation of three-dimensional organellar shapes… CONTINUE READING
