- ... The negative charges of cell wall pectin molecules attributed by pectin methylesterase (PME, EC 220.127.116.11) contribute to Al binding capacity. We examined the expression profiles of 35 members of the PME gene family in the root apex of an Al‐sensitive rice ‘Zhefu802’ under Al stress. While root elongation was inhibited by 40% after 3‐h exposure to 25 µM Al, cell wall PME activity and the abundance o ...
