The cell wall of the green alga Micrasterias denticulata Breb. ex Ralfs (Desmidiaceae, Zygnematophyceae, Streptophyta) was investigated to obtain information on the composition of component polysaccharides and proteoglycans to allow comparison with higher plants and to understand cell wall functions during development. Various epitopes currently assigned to arabinogalactan-proteins (AGPs) of higher plants could be detected in Micrasterias by immuno TEM and immunofluorescence methods, but the walls did not bind the β-d-glycosyl-Yariv (β-GlcY) reagent. Secretory vesicles and the primary wall were labeled by antibodies against AGPs (JIM8, JIM13, JIM14). Dot and Wes...
