Beta galactosidases in Arabidopsis and tomato - a mini review

Abstract:

Beta galactosidases (BGALs) are glycosyl hydrolases that remove terminal β-d-galactosyl residues from β-D-galactosides. There are 17 predicted BGAL genes in the genomes of both Arabidopsis (BGAL1-17) and tomato (TBG1-17). All tested BGALs have BGAL activity but their distinct expression profiles and ancient phylogenetic separation indicates that these enzymes fulfil diverse, non-redundant roles in plant biology. The majority of these BGALs are predicted to have signal peptide and thought to a...
