Engineering Bacillus megaterium for production of functional intracellular materials
(BioMed Central, 2017-11-22)
Background: Over the last 10-15 years, a technology has been developed to engineer bacterial polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) inclusions as functionalized beads, for applications such as vaccines, diagnostics and enzyme immobilization. ...
Formation of nano-fibrils from the A, B and C variants of bovine beta-lactoglobulin
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2015-02-01)
The deconstruction of pectic rhamnogalacturonan I unmasks the occurrence of a novel arabinogalactan oligosaccharide epitope
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2015-11-01)
Rhamnogalacturonan I (RGI) is a pectic polysaccharide composed of a backbone of alternating rhamnose and galacturonic acid residues with side chains containing galactose and/or arabinose residues. The structure of these ...
Monoclonal antibodies indicate low-abundance links between heteroxylan and other glycans of plant cell walls
(Springer Verlag, 2015-07-25)
Plant cell walls are complex composites of structurally distinct glycans that are poorly understood in terms of both in muro inter-linkages and developmental functions. Monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) are versatile tools that ...
Branched pectic galactan in phloem-sieve-element cell walls: Implications for cell mechanics
(American Society of Plant Biologists, 2018-02-06)
A major question in plant biology concerns the specification and functional differentiation of cell types. This is in the context of constraints imposed by networks of cell walls that both adhere cells and contribute to ...
Comparative in situ analyses of cell wall matrix polysaccharide dynamics in developing rice and wheat grain
(Springer Verlag, 2015-03-01)
Cell wall polysaccharides of wheat and rice endosperm are an important source of dietary fibre. Monoclonal antibodies specific to cell wall polysaccharides were used to determine polysaccharide dynamics during the development ...
Multi-scale spatial heterogeneity of pectic rhamnogalacturonan I (RG-I) structural features in tobacco seed endosperm cell walls
Plant cell walls are complex configurations of polysaccharides that fulfil a diversity of roles during plant growth and development. They also provide sets of biomaterials that are widely exploited in food, fibre and fuel ...
LM6-M: A high avidity rat monoclonal antibody to pectic α-1,5-L-arabinan
1,5-arabinan is an abundant structural feature of side chains of pectic rhamnogalacturonan-I which is a matrix constituent of plant cell walls. The study of arabinan in cells and tissues is driven by putative roles for ...
Extraction, texture analysis and polysaccharide epitope mapping data of sequential extracts of strawberry, apple, tomato and aubergine fruit parenchyma
The data included in this article are related to the research article entitled “Disentangling pectic homogalacturonan and rhamnogalacturonan-I polysaccharides: evidence for sub-populations in fruit parenchyma systems” ...
Sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) analysis of plant cell wall glycan connections
Sandwich ELISA is a highly sensitive method that can be used to determine if two epitopes are part of the same macromolecule or supramolecular complex. In the case of plant cell wall glycans, it can reveal the existence ...
