Seifert, GJ.
(2018): Mad moves of the building blocks - nucleotide sugars find unexpected paths into cell walls
J EXP BOT. 2018; 69(5): 905-907. FullText FullText_BOKU

Abstract:
A raft of recent studies, including a new paper by Zhao et al. (2018), has shed new light on the importance of cellular topology in controlling the flux of nucleotide sugars to their destinations. It is an exciting time, as the rapidly progressing elucidation of the convoluted flux of carbon bodies through nucleotide sugar metabolism and inter-organellar transport means we are approaching an understanding of the control principles of plant cell wall polysaccharide biosynthesis.
