ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Cell Walls‘ scientists have mapped changes in composition of plant cell walls over space and time, providing new insights into the development and growth of all plants.

A paper titled Regulation of Meristem Morphogenesis by Cell Wall Synthases in Arabidopsis which is published in the journal Current Biology, characterises the changes in plant cell walls and the expression of the genes for the enzymes that create them in the Arabidopsis shoot apex. They find that different enzymes build new walls and maturing walls, and that wall components and the gene expression that underlies their synthesis are highly regulated throughout development.
