Plant cells can monitor alternations in cell wall architecture. Treatment of tobacco BY2 cells with a cellulase or cellulose biosynthesis inhibitor significantly decreased the mRNA of endoxyloglucan transferase (EXGT). Our results indicated the importance of another gene(s) induced by cell wall defects for the decrease in EXGT mRNA.
