Xyloglucan (XyG) is a load-bearing primary wall component in dicotyledonous and non-graminaceous monocotyledonous plants. XyG fucosyltransferase (FUTase), encoded by the Arabidopsis gene AtFUT1, directs addition of fucose (Fuc) residues to terminal galactose residues on XyG side chains. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and analysis of promoter-beta-glucuronidase transgenic plants indicated highest expression of AtFUT1 in the upper portion of elongating inflorescence stems of… CONTINUE READING
