Identification, properties, and genetic control of UDP-glucose: Cyanidin-3-rhamnosyl-(1→6)-glucoside-5-O-glucosyltransferase isolated from petals of the red campion (Silene dioica)
An enzyme catalyzing the transfer of the glucosyl moiety of UDP-glucose to the 5-hydroxyl group of cyanidin-3-rhamnosyl-(1→6)-glucoside has been demonstrated in petal extracts of Silene dioica
Zur Biosynthese der Apiose
The presence of UDP-apiose in parsley strongly corroborates the proposed biosynthetic pathway for the formation of d-apiOSE via UDP-d-glucuronic acid.
A Modified Procedure for the Preparation of UDP-β-L-(U-14C)Rhamnose
Abstract This paper describes the synthesis of UDP-L-(U-14C)rhamnose from UDP-D-(U-14C)glucose and NADPH using an enzyme preparation of Nicotiana tabacum var. Xanthi. A procedure to separate

A survey of work will demonstrate how enzymes from different sources and pathways can be combined for the synthesis of nucleotide deoxysugars and oligosaccharides and the availability and use of these enzymes for synthesis applications.
Aldo (and Keto) Hexoses and Uronic Acids
As soon as information became available at the beginning of this century concerning the structure of the different monosaccharide moieties of complex plant polysaccharides, hypotheses were advanced
Nucleotides and related compounds in bracken
The presence of acid soluble nucleotides in bracken rhizomes was demonstrated and the uridine series was shown to predominate accounting for some 80% of the total and it is probable that these sugar nucleotide supply the full complement of sugars identified in the carbohydrate fractions of brackens.
Flavanone Glycoside Biosynthesis in Citrus: Chalcone Synthase, UDP-Glucose:Flavanone-7-O-Glucosyl-Transferase and -Rhamnosyl-Transferase Activities in Cell-Free Extracts.
Data indicate that Citrus contains a flavonoid pathway similar to that studied in other species, and chalcone-synthase and UDP-glucose:flavanone-7-O-glUCosyl-transferase activities in cell-free extracts of Citrus are detected.
Synthesis of β-l-rhamnosyl pyrophosphate esters of thymidine, uridine, and 2′-deoxyuridine
1. We have carried out the chemical synthesis of some nucleoside 5′-(β-L-rhanmosyl pyrophosphates), derivatives of thymidine, uridine, and 2′-deoxyuridine. 2. We have developed a
