Rhamnogalacturonan I (RG-I), a major pectic component of the primary walls of plant cells, is believed to play an important role in determining both the structure and functions of the walls. A more detailed structural description of RG-I is likely to lead to a greater understanding of the biological roles of this polysaccharide. Two enzymes secreted by Aspergillus aculeatus that have been cloned and expressed in a fungal system (Kofod et al., J. Biol. Chem., 269, 29182-29189, 1994) cleave the… CONTINUE READING
