Abstract.Various cell coverings in structure and composition occur in algae. They include intracellular cell coverings, scaly cell coverings, and cell walls. Chemical components of cell coverings vary depending on phylogenetic groups and generations. In this paper, the evolution of cell coverings is discussed.

The Cell Walls that Bind the Tree of Life
TLDR
It is indicated that the machinery responsible for synthesizing the cell walls of land plants, of their nearest algal relatives, and of some very ancient algal lineages can be traced back to ancient primary endosymbiotic events involving Eubacteria.
Cellulose-synthesizing complexes in some chromophyte algae
Freeze fracture investigations have been carried out to investigate cellulose-synthesizing terminal complexes (TCs) in some chromophyte algae. The xanthophycean alga Botrydiopsis intercedens has TCs
Evolution of the Cellulose Synthase (CesA) Gene Family: Insights from Green Algae and Seedless Plants
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the CesA gene families from vascular plants and the nonvascular plant Physcomitrella patens is consistent with independent CesA diversification in the moss and vascular plant lineages, demonstrating a congruence of TC and CesA structure over deep time.
Microbial diversity on a marble monument: a case study
In the presented case study, ascomycete fungi and green algae on a marble monument were identified by comparisons of the 18S rRNA gene sequences, which were obtained from DNA either from
Cellulose synthase (CesA) genes in algae and seedless plants
TLDR
A second CesA gene that has been cloned from Mesotaenium caldariorum, a unicellular green alga from the order Zygnematales, which has rosette terminal complexes, is described andylogenetic analysis supports the presence of CslD genes in both mosses and ferns, but does not support the existence of secondary cell wall specific CesA orthologs in mosses.
Cellulose biosynthesis: current views and evolving concepts.
TLDR
A complete understanding of this process will necessitate a wider variety of research tools and approaches than was thought to be required a few years back.
The Origin and Early Evolution of Green Plants
TLDR
The chapter discusses the core structure of the green plant phylogenetic tree; the archegoniate line, the chlorophyte line, and the prasinophytes, with special reference to those areas that are most relevant to larger issues of phototroph evolution in aquatic environments.
Recent progress in cellulose biosynthesis
TLDR
A new pathway for cellulose biosynthesis was proposed and one of these proteins, Korrigan cellulase, was suggested to act by removing sitosterol from the primer for biosynthesis reaction of cellulose.
Biochemical Mapping of Pyrodinium bahamense Unveils Molecular Underpinnings behind Organismal Processes
TLDR
Most of the annotated proteins were involved in amino acid biosynthesis and carbohydrate degradation and metabolism, indicating the active roles of these molecules in the vegetative stage of P. bahamense.
Polysaccharide utilisation loci of Bacteroidetes from two contrasting open ocean sites in the North Atlantic.
TLDR
The data suggest that as yet unstudied clades of these Bacteroidetes have a surprisingly broad capacity for polysaccharide degradation, and in particular, laminarin-specific PULs seem widespread and thus must be regarded as globally important.

Main Cell Wall Constituents of the Cysts of Acetabularia
To compare the rnain cell wall Constituents of a haplont plant of Acetabularia with those of the diplont plant, purified cyst walls ofA ryukyuensis and>4. mediterranea were analyzed using two kinds
Physiology and Biochemistry of Plant Cell Walls
TLDR
The role of the cell wall in the life of the plant and interactions with other organisms, and cell wall architecture and the skeletal functions of the wall.
Chemical Nature of the Cell Wall of the Green Algae, Codium, Acetabularia and Halicoryne
TLDR
The cell-wall constituents of the members of Dasycladaceae almost nothing is known at present except the incrustation of calcium in the cell wall.
Calcified structures and calcification in protists
SummaryThe diversity of calcified structures found in protists, the mechanisms utilized to form these structures, and the role these structures play in the taxonomy and systematics of the protists
Development of the cell wall in Tetraselmis: role of the Golgi apparatus and extracellular wall assembly.
TLDR
Ulastructural and developmental studies of the cell wall of Tetraselmis showed that when released from the cell, the wall subunits are not completely comparable to stellate scales, but appear to correspond to developmental stages of scales in green flagellates possessing body scales.
Cell wall constituents of several siphoneous green algae in relation to morphology and taxonomy
TLDR
The cell walls of both the gametophytic and sporophytic phases of the taxonomically related species Bryopsidella neglecta contained large amounts of xylose and glucose, and the presence of xylan in the cell wall of the sporophyte could be confirmed by infrared spectrometry.
CHEMICAL COMPOSITION AND STRUCTURE OF THE CELL WALLS OF THE CONCHOCELIS AND THALLUS PHASES OF PORPHYRA TENERA (RHODOPHYCEAE) 1, 2
TLDR
The results establish that the conchocelis and thallus phases of P. tenera differ markedly in the structure and composition of the cell walls.
Cellulose in the Cell Walls of the Bangiophyceae (Rhodophyta)
TLDR
The presence of cellulose in the conchocelis provides evidence that this bangiophycean life cycle phase represents a transitional form or link between the two classes of red algae, Bangiophyceae and Florideophycea, and supports the hypothesis that banguophycean algae were precursors of the Floridephyceae.
The amino acid and sugar composition of diatom cell-walls
TLDR
The amino acid and sugar composition of cell walls from 6 diatom species have been elucidated and Condensation of silicic acid, in epitaxial order, on a protein template enriched in serine and threonine, is suggested as the Si-depositing mechanism in diatoms.
Ultrastructure of the dinoflagellate amphiesma.
TLDR
Comparative studies of the ultrastructure of the cell coverings of cryptomonads, dinoflagellates, and euglenids reemphasize the uniqueness of these three algal divisions.
