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)
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)
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)
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)
Corn steep water (CSW) and other byproducts derived from fermentations and sugar productions are presently forming the base of compositions for de-icing and anti-icing materials. Since the de-icing and anti-icing values are in part a colligative property, increase in the molar concentration of ionic species has been frequently necessary to decrease further(More)
Extracellular polysaccharides (EPSs) produced by an Erwinia spp. associated with a fungal canker disease of Eucalyptus were fractionated into two polysaccharides, one that was identified with that produced by Erwinia stewartii. The other has a similar structure, but with one terminal Glc residue replaced by pyruvic acid to give(More)
