Chain Initiation in Glucan Synthesis in Mung Beans

Abstract

Feingold et al. (1958) and Flowers et al. (1968) have shown that a soluble enzyme fraction from mung beans (Phaseolus aureus) catalyses the formation of callose, a structural p-(I +3)-glucan, from UDP-glucose. Glucans synthesized under these conditions do not contain 8-(1+4)-linkages. Since this enzyme is soluble any substance needed to initiate a… (More)
