Enzymes of grasses involved in fructan synthesis are of interest since they play a major role in assimilate partitioning and allocation, for instance in the leaf growth zone. Several fructosyltransferases from tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea) have previously been purified (Lüscher and Nelson, 1995). It is surprising that all of these enzyme preparations appeared to act both as sucrose (Suc):Suc 1-fructosyl transferases (1-SST) and as fructan:fructan 6(G)-fructosyl transferases. Here we report… CONTINUE READING
