Arabidopsis irregular xylem8 and irregular xylem9: Implications for the Complexity of Glucuronoxylan Biosynthesis[W]
The results suggest that IRX9 is required for normal GX elongation and indicate roles for IRX8 and FRA8 in the synthesis of the glycosyl sequence at the GX reducing end. Expand
Isolation and characterization of plant cell walls and cell wall components
The methods used for isolating and characterizing the noncellulosic polysaccharides of the primary walls of suspension-cultured sycamore cells are described, which are applicable to the study of other types of cell walls. Expand
Rhamnogalacturonan II: structure and function of a borate cross-linked cell wall pectic polysaccharide.
The demonstration that RG-II exists in primary walls as a dimer that is covalently cross-linked by a borate diester was a major advance in the understanding of the structure and function of this pectic polysaccharide. Expand
Requirement of Borate Cross-Linking of Cell Wall Rhamnogalacturonan II for Arabidopsis Growth
The reduced cross-linking of RG-II in dwarf mur1 plants indicates that plant growth depends on wall pectic polysaccharide organization. Expand
Arabidopsis Fragile Fiber8, Which Encodes a Putative Glucuronyltransferase, Is Essential for Normal Secondary Wall Synthesis
Structural analysis of cell walls revealed that the fra8 mutation results in a specific defect in the addition of glucuronic acid residues onto xylans, indicating that FRA8 is a glucuronyltransferase involved in the biosynthesis of glucuronoxylan during secondary wall formation. Expand
Structure and function of the primary cell walls of plants.
All glycosyl residues (except the residue at the reducing end of an oligosaccharide, which is called a glycose residue) are glycosidically linked at C-l and this fact is assumed in the notation used, and, thus, C-\ is not mentioned. Expand
Characterization of the Cell-Wall Polysaccharides of Arabidopsis thaliana Leaves
The cell-wall polysaccharides of Arabidopsis thaliana leaves have been isolated, purified, and characterized, and these cell walls are remarkable in that they are particularly rich in phosphate buffer-soluble poly Saccharides. Expand
A xyloglucan-specific endo-beta-1,4-glucanase from Aspergillus aculeatus: expression cloning in yeast, purification and characterization of the recombinant enzyme.
It was shown that treatment of plant cell walls with XEG yields only xyloglucan oligosaccharides, indicating that this enzyme can be a powerful tool in the structural elucidation of xylglucans. Expand
Generation of Monoclonal Antibodies against Plant Cell-Wall Polysaccharides (I. Characterization of a Monoclonal Antibody to a Terminal [alpha]-(1->2)-Linked Fucosyl-Containing Epitope
Ligand competition assays using a series of oligosaccharides derived from or related to sycamore maple XG demonstrated that a terminal [alpha]-(1->2)-likned fucosyl residue constitutes an essential part of the epitope recognized by CCRC-M1. Expand
An unambiguous nomenclature for xyloglucan‐derived oligosaccharides
A revised system of abbreviated names is proposed for xyloglucan-derived oligosaccharides. Each (1→4)-linked β-D-glucosyl residue (and the reducing terminal n-glucose moiety) of the backbone is givenExpand
