The endomembrane sheath: a key structure for understanding the plant cell?

  title={The endomembrane sheath: a key structure for understanding the plant cell?},
  author={Christophe Reuzeau and James G. McNally and Barbara Gillespie Pickard},
Recent evidence suggests that integrin is abundant in endomembranes of plant cells, and the endomembranes are clad by a sheath of cytoskeleton including F-actin. A role for endomembrane integrin and the endomembrane sheath is proposed: this system might orchestrate metabolic regulation by providing and modulating loci for channelling, and might accelerate channeling as needed by dragging the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and organelles through the cytoplasm. To accomplish this “streaming”, F-actin… CONTINUE READING
