Polysaccharide Synthases - F and H
Non-cellulosic polysaccharides, including (1,3;1,4)-β-D-glucans, are key components of the cell walls in cereal grain tissues. These non-cellulosic polysaccharides constitute less than 10% of the overall weight of the grain; however they are important determinants of grain quality. (1,3;1,4)-β-D-glucans are important in the large-scale feed...
