Molecular Recognition Properties of Chlamydomonas HRPG’s

Animals and plants both possess matrix macromoleeules charactererized by a high content of proline residues postranslationally modified to 4-transhydroxyproline. In animal cells, a large family of well characterized hydroxyproline-rich glycoproteins (HRGP’s), the collagens, perform a variety of important structural, developmental, and homeostatic functions. That plants also contain HRGP’s was first demonstrated by D.T.A. Lamport (1), who named the HYP-containing cell wall glycoprotein of dicotyledenous plants “extensin”, based on a presumed role in extensibility. The insolubility of extensins, however, hampered the study of these macromolecules and their assembly properties until the discovery of soluble extensins (2-4). Like the collagens, plant extensins appear to be members of a large family of related proteins (see reference 5 for a recent review).
