Cell walls are important features of plant cells that perform a number of essential functions including providing shape to the many different cell types needed to form the tissues and organs of a plant forming the interface between adjacent cells plant cell walls often play important roles in intercellular communication because of their surface location plant cell walls play an important role in plant microbe interactions including defense responses against potential pathogens the . Cell wall specialized form of extracellular matrix that surrounds every cell of a plant the cell wall is responsible for many of the characteristics that distinguish plant cells from animal cells although often perceived as an inactive product serving mainly mechanical and structural purposes the cell wall actually has a multitude of functions upon which plant life depends such functions include 1 providing the living cell with mechanical protection and a chemically buffered. The plant cell wall is a natural nanoscale network structure that primarily consists of polysaccharide polymers such as cellulose hemicellulose and pectin but often includes glycoproteins and lignin as well this intricate structure encases plant cells and provides them with diverse shapes sizes and distinct physicochemical properties that allow them to fulfill their roles in different . Plant cell walls plants are able to generate large leaf surfaces that act as two dimensional solar panels with a minimum investment in building material thanks to a hydrostatic skeleton this requires high intracellular pressures up to 1 mpa which depend on the presence of strong cell walls the walls of growing
