Soybean hull peroxidase (SBP, E.C. 1.11.1.7), an anionic glycoprotein, was found to contain 18.2% carbohydrate with the average composition: 2 mol GlcNAc, 3.3 mol Man, 0.9 mol Fuc, and 0.7 mol Xyl. The oligosaccharides of SBP, after release with glycopeptidase A, were investigated by a combination of high pH anion exchange chromatography with pulsed(More)
The tryptic glycopeptides of horseradish peroxidase isozyme c (HRPc) were studied by methylation linkage analysis, exoglycosidase degradation, and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDITOFMS). Over 90% of the predicted tryptic peptides and glycopeptides of HRPc could be identified in the unfractionated digest.(More)
The acetyl groups in polysaccharides and glycoproteins have been determined using 4 N HCl at 120 degrees C for acid hydrolysis. Acetic acid and hexosamine were determined by high-performance cation-exchange chromatography with UV detection and high-performance anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed amperomeric detection, respectively. The method compares(More)
Two extracellular polysaccharides from strains of Erwinia chrysanhemi Ech 1 and 9, phytopathogens of potatoes, have been isolated and purified. Both have similar compositions and other properties to that produced by strain SR 260, a phytopathogen of corn. These polysaccharides are composed of L-rhamnose, D-mannose, D-glucose, D-glucuronic acid in the ratio(More)
Trifluoroacetic anhydride is an effective promoter for the preparation of chitin single- and mixed-acid esters. Complete dissolution is achieved within 30 min when powdered chitin is heated at 70 degrees C in a mixed solution of carboxylic acid(s) and trifluoroacetic anhydride. Chitin esters prepared are chitin acetate, chitin butyrate, chitin hexanoate and(More)
The expansion of glycomics analysis is reliant upon the development of robust, routine methods for carbohydrate characterization. Simple protocols to derivatize sugars with functionality that facilitate analysis-chromophores, fluorophores, charges, ionizable groups-are therefore necessary. Here we describe a method for the labeling of oligosaccharide(More)
Extracellular polysaccharides (EPSs) produced by an Erwinia sp associated with a fungal canker disease of Eucalyptus were fractionated into one polysaccharide that was identified with that produced by Erwinia chrysanthemi strains SR260, Ech1, and Ech9, and the other distinctively different from any other EPS produced by E. chrysanthemi strains so far(More)
The structure of the extracellular polysaccharide (EPS) produced by Erwinia chrysanthemi strain RA3W, a mutant strain of E. chrysanthemi RA3, has been determined using low pressure size-exclusion and anion-exchange chromatographies, high pH anion-exchange chromatography, glycosyl linkage analysis, and 1D 1H NMR spectroscopy. The polysaccharide is(More)
Erwinia chrysanthemi spp. are gram-negative bacterial phytopathogens causing soft rots in a number of plants. The structure of the extracellular polysaccharide (EPS) produced by the E. chrysanthemi strain A350, which is a lacZ- mutant of the wild type strain 3937, pathogenic to Saintpaulia, has been determined using a combination of chemical and physical(More)
