Abstract
Abstract Land plants inherited several traits from their green algal ancestors (Zygnematophyceae), including a polysaccharide-rich cell wall, which is a prerequisite for terrestrial survival. A major component of both, land plant and Zygnematophyceaen cell walls is the pectin homogalacturonan (HG) and its high water holding capacity may have helped algae to colonize terrestrial habitats, characterised by water scarcity. To test this, HG was removed from the cell walls of Zygnema filaments by pectate lyase (PL) and their effective quantum yield of photosystem II (YII) as a proxy for photosynthetic performance was measured in response to desiccation stress by puls...
