Plant cell walls are composed of complex carbohydrates, proteins, phenolic compounds, and inorganic ions, all of which play functional roles. Cellulose (1, 4-fO-glucan) and callose (1, 3-fO-glucan) are synthesized in the plasma membrane, while other polysaccharides are synthesized in the Golgi. Plant cell growth occurs with the loosening of the walls, which may be caused by several enzymatic actions. Plant development is related to the morphological changes of cells and tissue, which is caused by structural changes of the walls.qSince the distance (d) between individual microfibrils did not depend on their angle with the cella#39;s long axis, and the inner root ... Thus, in order to make a helicoidal texture, synthase insertion/activation had to stop as soon as the longitudinal microfibril orientation was reached. ... My technical assistant, Henk Kieft, and I could show (with the help of simple computer simulations) that the model was able toanbsp;...
