Plant cell walls are dynamic structures involved in all aspects of plant growth, environmental interactions and defense responses, and are the most abundant renewable source of carbon-containing polymers on the planet. To balance rigidity and extensibility, the composition and integrity of cell wall components need to be tightly regulated, for example during cell elongation. We show that mutations in the MED25/PFT1 and MED8 subunits of the Mediator transcription complex suppressed the sugar… CONTINUE READING
