Re-interpreting the role of endo-beta-mannanases as mannan endotransglycosylase/hydrolases in the plant cell wall.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Mannans are hemicellulosic polysaccharides in the plant primary cell wall with two major physiological roles: as storage polysaccharides that provide energy for the growing seedling; and as structural components of the hemicellulose-cellulose network with a similar function to xyloglucans. Endo-beta-mannanases are hydrolytic enzymes that cleave… (More)
