Epitope tagging of legume root nodule extensin modifies protein structure and crosslinking in cell walls of transformed tobacco leaves.

Abstract

Root nodule extensins (RNEs) are highly glycosylated plant glycoproteins localized in the extracellular matrix of legume tissues and in the lumen of Rhizobium-induced infection threads. In pea and other legumes, a family of genes encode glycoproteins of different overall length but with the same basic composition. The predicted polypeptide sequence reveals… (More)
