As a leader in biophysical analysis, CD BioSciences is committed to continuously developing technologies for studying the structure of soft matter. We provide customers with emerging technologies based on diffraction/scattering, imaging and spectroscopy to accelerate their research on the characterization of cell walls.
The cell wall of plants is made up of multiple polymers and structural proteins and is a complex dynamic network. Composed of three parts: the intercellular layer, the primary wall and the secondary wall, the cell wall serves to maintain cell morphology, enhance cellular mechanics and is involved in a number of physiological processes such as material transport, the regulation of plant water potential and intercellular communication.
In recent years, breakthroughs in biophysics have opened up new opportunities for the structural characterization of the cell wall. Current research is typically based on four types of techniques for the analysis of plant cell wall structure, including microscopy, spectroscopy, diffraction/scattering and physicochemical analysis. In total, the combination of multiple emerging techniques to study the organization of cell wall components has provided researchers with an experimental basis for gaining insight into cell wall structure and assembly.
