    FEBS Lett 540:259-63. 2003
    ..Our data indicate that TAXI-I belongs to a newly identified class of plant proteins for which a molecular function as glycoside hydrolase inhibitor can now be suggested...

    Protein Expr Purif 37:39-46. 2004
    ..The present results show that xylanase inhibition activity of TAXI-I is only affected to a limited degree by its glycosylation or proteolytic processing...

    Katleen Fierens
    Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Laboratory of Food Chemistry, Leuven, Belgium
    FEBS J 272:5872-82. 2005
    ..In addition, the results show that His374 plays a critical role in the stabilization of the endoxylanase-TAXI-I complex rather than in the docking of inhibitor onto enzyme...
