Modulation of the pectic signal by polyamines present in the plant cell wall

Project: Research

Description

Positively charged polyamines interact as a function of their valency with the pectic polyanions within the plant cell wall. Polyamines thus modify the elicitating properties of pectic fragments by modulating their binding to the membrane receptors.
