author keywords: AtCesA7; cellulose synthesis complex; genetic complementation; irx3-1 mutant; PpCesA5; protein engineering; sum frequency generation spectroscopy
TL;DR: The cumulative results show that the FTVTxK region is important for the function of an angiosperm secondary wall CesA as well as widely divergent primary wall CesAs, while differences in complementation results between isomers may reflect functional differences that can be explored in further work.
