Restoration of Mature Etiolated Cucumber Hypocotyl Cell Wall Susceptibility to Expansin by Pretreatment with Fungal Pectinases and EGTA in Vitro1
Mature plant cell walls lose their ability to expand and become unresponsive to expansin. This phenomenon is believed to be due to cross-linking of hemicellulose, pectin, or phenolic groups in theExpand

Synergism between cucumber alpha-expansin, fungal endoglucanase and pectin lyase.
Several recombinant fungal enzymes (endoglucanase and pectinase) were studied for their interactions with alpha-expansin in cell wall extension and polysaccharide degradation. Both Cel12A and Cel5AExpand

Stipe wall extension of Flammulina velutipes could be induced by an expansin-like protein from Helix aspersa.
Expansin proteins extend plant cell walls by a hydrolysis-free process that disrupts hydrogen bonding between cell wall polysaccharides. However, it is unknown if this mechanism is operative inExpand

Bioorganic–Mineral Fertilizer Can Remediate Chemical Fertilizer-Oversupplied Soil: Purslane Planting as an Example
Chemical fertilizer (CF)-oversupplied soils in intensive agricultural systems are typically abandoned due to loss of fertility and productivity. In this study, we investigated the potential ofExpand

Bio-organic-mineral fertilizer can improve soil quality and promote the growth and quality of water spinach
Abstract: Increasingly, poor soils are used for plant cultivation involving chemical fertilizer (CF) usage which in turn lowers soil quality. To improve the quality of poor soils, promote plantExpand
