Influence of ultraviolet-C on the compositions of cell-wall polysaccharides and carbohydrase activities of Silene vulgaris callus.

Abstract

UV-C irradiation (254 nm) was found to enhance the secretion of some cell-wall-degrading enzymes, especially the following carbohydrases: beta-galactosidase, alpha-L-arabinofuranosidase, polygalacturonase, pectinesterase, cellulase, xylanase, and beta-xylosidase, in the campion callus, contributing thereby to an alteration in the polysaccharide structure… (More)
