A SIMPLE AND RAPID PREPARATION OF ALDITOL ACETATES FOR MONOSACCHARIDE ANALYSIS
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.
Covalent Cross-Links in the Cell Wall
The results with 2,6-dichlorobenzonitrile-adapted tomato and tobacco cells in suspension culture indicate that although the cellulose-xyloglucan network in these walls is greatly reduced, the cells remain viable under normal osmotic conditions.

Curdlan and other bacterial (1→3)-β-d-glucans
This review includes information on the structure, properties and molecular genetics of the bacterial (1→3)-β-glucans, together with an overview of the physiology and biotechnology of curdlan production and applications of this biopolymer and its derivatives.
Form and function of arabinogalactans and arabinogalactan-proteins
Detection of two loci involved in (1-->3)-beta-glucan (curdlan) biosynthesis by Agrobacterium sp. ATCC31749, and comparative sequence analysis of the putative curdlan synthase gene.
Complete sequencing of the 1623 bp crdS gene revealed highest similarities between the predicted CrdS protein (540 amino acids) and glycosyl transferases with repetitive action patterns, which include bacterial cellulose synthases (and their homologs), which form (1-->4)-beta-glucans.
