Transfer cell wall architecture: a contribution towards understanding localized wall deposition

  title={Transfer cell wall architecture: a contribution towards understanding localized wall deposition},
  author={Mark J. Talbot and Christina E Offler and David W McCurdy},
A survey is presented of the architecture of secondary wall ingrowths in transfer cells from various taxa based on scanning electron microscopy. Wall ingrowths are a distinguishing feature of transfer cells and serve to amplify the plasma membrane surface area available for solute transport. Morphologically, two categories of ingrowths are recognized: reticulate and flange. Reticulate-type wall ingrowths are characterized by the deposition of small papillae that emerge from the underlying wall… CONTINUE READING
