To understand primary cell wall assembly in Arabidopsis, we have focused on identifying and characterizing enzymes involved in xyloglucan biosynthesis. Nine genes (AtFUT2-10) were identified that share between 47% and 62% amino acid similarity with the xyloglucan-specific fucosyltransferase AtFUT1. Reverse transcriptase-PCR analysis indicates that all these genes are expressed. Bioinformatic analysis predicts that these family members are fucosyltransferases, and we first hypothesized that some… CONTINUE READING
