A beta-D-glucan exohydrolase was purified from the cell walls of developing maize (Zea mays L.) shoots. The cell wall enzyme preferentially hydrolyzes the non-reducing terminal glucosyl residue from (1-->3)-beta-D-glucans, but also hydrolyzes (1-->2)-, (1-->6)-, and (1-->4)-beta-D-glucosyl units in decreasing order of activity. Polyclonal antisera raised against the purified exo-beta-D-glucanase (ExGase) were used to select partial-length cDNA clones, and the complete sequence of 622 amino acid… CONTINUE READING
