Divalent cation interactions with oligogalacturonides.


The conformational properties of high and low molecular weight galacturonides were investigated in relation to the ability of oligomers with degree of polymerization >10 to act as elicitors of plant defense mechanisms. Oligomers from polygalacturonate were obtained by means of enzymatic hydrolysis. Two fractions exhibiting high and low average degrees of… (More)
