alpha-L-Fucosidase is a cell wall protein purified from pea (Pisum sativum) epicotyls. The alpha-L-fucosidase hydrolyzes terminal fucosyl residues from oligosaccharides of plant cell wall xyloglucan. alpha-L-Fucosidase may be an important factor in plant growth regulation, as it inactivates fucose-containing xyloglucan oligosaccharides that inhibit growth of pea stem segments. The amino acid sequences of the NH2-terminal region and one internal peptide were used to design redundant… CONTINUE READING
