AbstractBrown algae have plasmodesmata, tiny tubular cytoplasmic channels connecting adjacent cells. The lumen of plasmodesmata is 10–20 nm wide, and it takes a simple form, without a desmotubule (the inner membrane structure consisting of endoplasmic reticulum in the plasmodesmata of green plants). In this study, we analyzed the ultrastructure and distribution of plasmodesmata during development of
