Method A quantitative tool was developed to measure the coefficient of conductivity, C(Pd), for diffusion-driven transport via Pd and to assess changes in the coefficient induced by developmental, biotic and abiotic signals.
Comments In plants, symplasmic cell-to-cell communication is provided by plasmodesmata (Pd), coaxial membranous tunnels that span cell walls interconnecting adjacent cytoplasms. Macromolecules, proteins, and RNA may be transported through Pd by passive diffusion or by a facilitated mechanism.
