  • Antibodies were used to localise polysaccharide and protein networks in the protoxylem of etiolated soybean hypocotyls
  • In addition to the glycine-rich proteins network, a polysaccharide network composed mainly of pectins is involved in the attachment of the secondary wall thickenings to the middle lamellae of xylem parenchyma cells
  • Protoxylem: the deposition of a network containing glycine-rich cell wall proteins starts in the cell corners in close association with the pectins of the middle lamella
