Abstract Cell-wall fractions have been prepared from an alcohol-insoluble-residue of carrot root by treatment with (a) Pronase to remove the cytoplasmic proteins, (b) hot dilute acid and cold dilute alkali to give pectin-free residues, and (c) concentrated alkali to leave the α-cellulose and lignin. The purified cell-wall material still contained ∼ 1% protein and was composed mainly of cellulose, lignin, methyl-esterified galacturonic acid, and smaller amounts of galactose and arabinose… CONTINUE READING
