Abstract

Abnormalities of cell walls belong to the earliest symptoms of boron deficiency. Significant influences on physical cell wall parameters can be observed within 5 minutes after withholding B supply to the roots (Findeklee and Goldbach 1996, Goldbach et al. 2000). B keeps the integrity of cell walls by binding to pectic polysaccharides via diol linkages of RGII subunits, which form a three-dimensional web-like matrix orienting and fixing microfibers and other constituents of cell walls (Matoh, 1997). He et al. (1996) consider this role of B in cell wall structure as possibly its only physiological function in higher plants.
