Cellulase activity was measured in soybean (Glycine max) leaf abscission zones, flower abscission zones, pod abscission zones, apical buds, and adventitious rooting hypocotyls. Immunoprecipitation data showed that a cellulase immunologically similar to the bean abscission cellulase (isoelectric point 9.5) is present in soybean leaf, flower, and pod abscission zones, but is not present in soybean apical buds or rooting hypocotyls. cDNA and genomic clones for two different soybean genes were…

Regulation of DTA-6 by Abscission Cellulase and GmAC Gene Expression in Flowers and Pods of Soybean
TLDR
The relative expression of abscmission cellulase gene (GmAC) in abscission zone of flowers-pods was decreased and the AC activity was regulated by DTA-6, resulting in reduced abscissions rate of soybean flowers and pods and promoted yield.
Soybean Endo-β-Mannanase GmMAN1 Is Not Associated with Leaf Abscission, but Might Be Involved in the Response to Wounding
TLDR
It is concluded that the soybean endo-β-mannanase GmMAN1 is not associated with leaf abscission, but might be involved in the response to wounding.
Gene expression profiles for cell wall-modifying proteins associated with soybean cyst nematode infection, petiole abscission, root tips, flowers, apical buds, and leaves.
TLDR
Changes in transcript accumulation for cell wall-modifying proteins were examined in excised soybean root pieces colonized by soybean cyst nematodes, using RT-PCR and soybean Affymetrix GeneChips to identify previously uncharacterized soybean transcripts.
Three Different Polygalacturonases Are Expressed in Tomato Leaf and Flower Abscission, Each with a Different Temporal Expression Pattern
TLDR
The cloning of a tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) polygalacturonase (PG) cDNA, TAPG1, expressed during leaf and flower abscission, has been cloned and it is revealed that all three PGs are expressed in leaf and Flower abscissions zones and in pistils of fully open flowers.
The gene promoter for a bean abscission cellulase is ethylene-induced in transgenic tomato and shows high sequence conservation with a soybean abscission cellulase
TLDR
Particle gun bombardment with a BAC promoter construct containing 210 bp of BAC sequence 5′ to the transcription start site was sufficient to drive abscission-specific and ethylene and auxin-regulated transient expression in bean and in stably transformed tomato.
An endo-1,4-β-glucanase expressed at high levels in rapidly expanding tissues
TLDR
Accumulation of Ce14 mRNA was found to be correlated with rapid cell expansion in pistils, hypocotyls and leaves, suggesting that Ce14 RNA accumulation may be promoted directly or indirectly by ethylene.
Gene Expression Profiling and Shared Promoter Motif for Cell Wall-Modifying Proteins Expressed in Soybean Cyst Nematode-Infected Roots
TLDR
Gene expression patterns for several cell wall-modifying proteins were compared in multiple tissues undergoing major shifts in cell wall integrity and identified a motif (SCNbox1: WGCATGTG) common to several genes that were up-regulated in several different tissues.

Occurrence of 9.5 cellulase and other hydrolases in flower reproductive organs undergoing major cell wall disruption.
TLDR
It appears that the basic cellulase and chitinase occur in combination in many plant processes that require major cell wall disruption, whereas hemicellulases such as beta-1,3-glucanase are specific to each process.
Bean abscission cellulase : characterization of a cDNA clone and regulation of gene expression by ethylene and auxin.
TLDR
Ethylene is required not only to initiate abscission and cellulase gene expression but also to maintain continued accumulation of cellulase mRNA.
Sequence analysis and comparison of avocado fruit and bean abscission cellulases.
TLDR
Analysis of the deduced amino acid sequences for the mature bean and avocado cellulases indicates that these two proteins share similar molecular weights, position of cysteine residues, and hydropathic character, but have very different isoelectric points and glycosylation.
Functional Analysis of Cx-cellulase (Endo-β-1,4-Glucanase) Gene Expression in Transgenic Tomato Fruit
TLDR
The role of Cx-cellulase-mediated cell wall polymer degradation in tomato fruit ripening and softening is investigated and levels of endogenous Cell mRNA have been reduced by 90%.
Hormonally Induced Changes in the Stem and Petiole Anatomy and Cellulase Enzyme Patterns in Phaseolus vulgaris L.
TLDR
The absence of basic pI cellulase activity by the removal of endogenously generated ethylene suggests a close dependence ofbasic pI cell division and dedifferentiation activity on ethylene.
The use of immunological methods to study the activity of cellulase isozymes (B 1:4 glucan 4-glucan hydrolase) in bean leaf abscission
TLDR
Data from both radioimmune and direct assay show that the 9.5 form of cellulase is undetectable prior to the induction of abscission, consistent with the view that this specific isozyme is involved in wall hydrolysis but also with previous data which showed that cellulase was synthesized ‘de novo’.
Occurrence and Localization of 9.5 Cellulase in Abscising and Nonabscising Tissues.
TLDR
The determinant characteristic of the abscission process is the induction of 9.5 cellulase by cortical cells in the separation layer, and this implies that these cells have a unique mechanism for initiating 9.
Massive synthesis of ribonucleic Acid and cellulase in the pea epicotyl in response to indoleacetic Acid, with and without concurrent cell division.
TLDR
It is concluded that IAA-induced RNA synthesis is required for cellulase synthesis and lateral cell expansion, whether or not cell division takes place.
