Extracellular pathogenesis-related proteins, including glucanases, are expressed at cold temperatures in winter rye (Secale cereale) and display antifreeze activity. We have characterized recombinant cold-induced glucanases from winter rye to further examine their roles and contributions to cold tolerance. Both basic beta-1,3-glucanases and an acidic beta-1,3;1,4-glucanase were expressed in Escherichia coli, purified, and assayed for their hydrolytic and antifreeze activities in vitro. All were… CONTINUE READING
