Adenosine 5'-phosphosulfate (APS) sulfotransferase is thought to be an enzyme that transfers the sulfo-group of APS to a carrier compound with a thiol group in the assimilatory sulfate reduction pathway of higher plants. We developed a rapid, non-radioactive assay for APS sulfotransferase. Sulfite released by APS sulfotransferase reaction in the presence of(More)
This work was aimed to develop water resistant biocide film from renewable resources for applications in food and water technology. Guar gum, a polymeric galactomannan, was intrinsically modified to a new guar gum benzamide. Benzoylation was carried out by benzoyl chloride reaction in water medium and a propyl amine spacer was used to impart a high degree(More)
