FunRich is an open access, standalone functional enrichment and network analysis tool that permits for the tool to be exploited as a skeleton for enrichment analysis irrespective of the data type or organism used.
The Fasciclin-Like Arabinogalactan Proteins of Arabidopsis. A Multigene Family of Putative Cell Adhesion Molecules1
It is shown that FLAs precipitate with β-glucosyl Yariv reagent, indicating that they share structural characteristics with AGPs, and RNA gel blots for a number of FLAs indicate that they are likely to be important during plant development and in response to abiotic stress.

The biased amino acid composition of AGPs was used to identify AGPs and arabinogalactan (AG) peptides in the Arabidopsis genome and the microarray data support the suggestion that different AGPs have different functions.
Cellulose Synthase-Like CslF Genes Mediate the Synthesis of Cell Wall (1,3;1,4)-ß-d-Glucans
Comparison genomics has used comparative genomics to link a major quantitative trait locus for (1,3;1,4)-β-d-glucan content in barley grain to a cluster of cellulose synthase–like CslF genes in rice.
The Classical Arabinogalactan Protein Gene Family of Arabidopsis
This work identified 15 genes encoding the protein backbones of classical AGPs, including genes for AG peptides—AGPs with very short backbones (10 to 13 amino acid residues).
Arabinogalactan-Proteins: Key Regulators at the Cell Surface?1
Arabinogalactan-proteins (AGPs) are undoubtedly one of the most complex families of macromolecules found in plants, perhaps matched only by the polyphenolics (lignins/cutins/suberins) and pectins.…

Examination of models for proteoglycan function in animals and yeast is examined to highlight possible strategies for determining the function(s) of individual AGPs in plants.

Analysis time will vary depending on both the method used and the tissue type, and ranges from 2 d for a simple neutral sugar composition to 2 weeks for a carboxyl reduction/methylation linkage analysis.
High-throughput mapping of cell-wall polymers within and between plants using novel microarrays.
A methodology that enables the occurrence of cell-wall glycans to be systematically mapped throughout plants in a semi-quantitative high-throughput fashion is described and the potential of CoMPP as a component of systems-based approaches to cell- wall biology is demonstrated.
A barley cellulose synthase-like CSLH gene mediates (1,3;1,4)-β-d-glucan synthesis in transgenic Arabidopsis

Both the CSLH and CSLF families contribute to β-glucan synthesis in grasses and probably do so independently of each other, because there is no significant transcriptional correlation between these genes in the barley tissues surveyed.
