The cell-wall polysaccharides from different parts of maize roots have been analysed. The arabinose, galactose and mannose contents are influenced by cell differentiation, whereas xylose, rhamnose and uronic-acid contents are not. In cap cells, the pectin content is low but rhamnose and fucose are present in larger quantities. The cell-wall polysaccharides from cells of the elongation zone and their respective regenerating protoplasts were also analysed. The walls of the protoplasts contained higher xylose and mannose levels and a much lower level of cellulose than the cells from which they were derived.
