Freeze-fracturing of untreated plasma membrane and inner wall surfaces of stelar tissue in corn roots demonstrated the association of globular complexes with the ends of nascent microfibrils. It is proposed that the granule complexes associated with the outer leaflet of the plasma membrane coordinate the assembly of the cellulosic microfibrils.
