GDP-mannose-3′,5′-epimerase (GME) is an enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of GDP-l-galactose which is a building unit of agar and cell wall polysaccharides. GME catalyzes the formation of GDP-β-l-galactose and GDP-l-gulose from GDP-mannose. In this study, the gene and transcript encoding GME from the red alga Gracilaria changii (GcGME) were cloned.

Many bacterial epiphytes of agar-producing seaweeds secrete agarase that degrade algal cell wall matrix into oligoagars which elicit defense-related responses in the hosts. The molecular defense responses of red seaweeds are largely unknown. In this study, we surveyed the defense-related transcripts of an agarophyte, Gracilaria changii, treated with(More)
