  • Stafstrom, Joel P.; Staehelin, L. Andrew (American Society of Plant Biologists, 1986)
    Extensins are hydroxyproline-rich glycoproteins (HRGPs) found in the primary cell walls of dicots. Extensin monomers are secreted into the wall and covalently bound to each other, presumably by isodityrosine (IDT) ...
  • Stafstrom, Joel P.; Staehelin, L. Andrew (American Society of Plant Biologists, 1986)
    Monomers of the plant cell wall glycoprotein extensin are secreted into the wall where they become cross-linked to each other to form a rigid matrix. Expression of the extensin matrix is correlated with the inhibition ...
