Cell Wall Extensin Genes
Multicellular organisms are composed of coordinately regulated cells embedded in a secreted extracellular matrix. This secreted cell wall integrates the biophysical structure of groups of cells to form tissues, and regulates the growth and development of the entrapped cells by a variety of mechanisms. An excess of fixed carbon allowed plant cells to evolve walls with a high content of structural polysaccharides, the properties of which caused plants to evolve unique cellular strategies for regulating cell growth and development.
