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 ...
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 ...
Endothelial function and insulin sensitivity during acute non-esterified fatty acid elevation: Effects of fat composition and gender.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: We have reported that adverse effects on flow-mediated dilation of an acute elevation of non-esterified fatty acids rich in saturated fat (SFA) are reversed following addition of long-chain (LC) n-3 ...
Single-molecule folding mechanisms of the apo- and Mg(2+)-bound states of human neuronal calcium sensor-1.
Neuronal calcium sensor-1 (NCS-1) is the primordial member of a family of proteins responsible primarily for sensing changes in neuronal Ca(2+) concentration. NCS-1 is a multispecific protein interacting with a number of ...
Firm size and the political cycle premium
We investigate the role of firm size in generating political cycle outcomes. Like in the U.S., New Zealand’s political cycle premium is driven by small firms; however, the results are opposite. In New Zealand, periods ...
