The Plant Cell Wall (Blackwell Publishing/ CRC Press, 2003). In the last few years, scientists have employed new analytical tools associated with molecular biology, biochemistry, spectroscopy, microscopy, immunology, genomics, and proteomics to investigate plant cell-wall structure and function. This has provided a degree of resolution that was unattainable until recently. Rose has edited a volume that bridges the biochemistry-oriented cell-wall literature and new technology-driven approaches. He provides an overview of the current understanding of plant cell walls, based on the recent advances of plant molecular biology. It incorporates the identification of a rapidly growing number of genes and proteins responsible for plant cell-wall synthesis, restructuring, degradation, and wall-associated signal transduction.
