Abstract:The accumulation of the mRNA coding for a hydroxyproline-rich glycoprotein (HRGP), an abundant component of the wall from the cells of vegetative tissues, has been observed in maize embryo by in situ hybridization. The HRGP mRNA accumulates in the embryo axis and not in the scutellum and preferentially in dividing and provascular cells. The histone H4 mRNA is distributed in similar tissues but is restricted to defined groups of cells, indicating that these two gene products have a different steady-state level of accumulation during the cell cycle. The HRGP mRNA appears to be a useful marker for early formation of the vascular systems. The mRNA accumulation correlates in space and time with cells having a low content of cellulose in their walls, suggesting that the mRNA is produced in the early stages of cell wall formation before complete deposition of cellulose.
