On Pectin Methyl-esterification: Implications for In vitro and In vivo Viscoelasticity
Pectin is a major component of the primary plant cell wall and is important for cell expansion. However, the relationship between its chemistry and mechanical properties is not fully understood, especially in vivo. In this study, a protocol for viscoelastic micro-indentation using atomic force microscopy (AFM) was developed and applied to pectin in vitro and in vivo. After determining that linear viscoelasticity was a suitable theoretical framework for in vitro pectin analyses were conducteddoi:10.1101/565614 fatcat:gt34hpqmovesthrf5hxgeenacq
