Localization of storage carbohydrate planteose and identification of the planteose hydrolytic enzyme OmAGAL2 in seeds of Orobanche minor

Using MALDI-MS imaging, we visualized the localization of trisaccharide planteose in the dry seeds of Orobanche minor. Planteose was revealed to accumulate outside of the embryo, which supported the role of planteose as a storage carbohydrate. Since the first step of planteose is the hydrolysis of α-galactosyl linkage, we surveyed α-galactosidases in our transcriptome data. Among the […]
