Plasmodesmata (PD) are membranous intercellular nanochannels crossing the plant cell wall to connect adjacent cells in plants. Our understanding of PD function heavily relies on the identification of their molecular components, these being proteins or lipids. In that regard, proteomic and lipidomic analyses of purified PD represent a crucial strategy in the field. Here we describe a simple two-step purification procedure that allows isolation of pure PD-derived membranes from Arabidopsis suspension cells suitable for "omic" approaches. The first step of this procedure consists on isolating pure cell walls containing intact PD, followed by a second step which involves an enzymatic degradation of the wall matrix to release PD membranes. The PD-enriched fraction can then serve to identify the lipid and protein composition of PD using lipidomic and proteomic approaches, which we also describe in this method article. © 2022.
