Changes in homogalacturonans and enzymes degrading them during cotton cotyledon expansion.

Abstract

Changes in homogalacturonans (HGs) and enzymes degrading them have been investigated during cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) cotyledon expansion. Using an in vivo assay for pectin-degrading enzymes that involves fluorescent labeled oligomers of GalA as substrate and capillary electrophoresis for product analysis, we found that endo- and exo-polygalacturonases… (More)
