. Cell wall hemicellulose contributes significantly to aluminum adsorption and root growth in Arabidopsis. Plant Physiol. 2011;155:1885-92 pubmed publisher
..These results, to our knowledge for the first time, demonstrate that HC is the major pool for Al accumulation. Furthermore, Al-induced reduction in XET activity could play an important role in Al-induced root growth inhibition...

. Regulation of cotton fiber elongation by xyloglucan endotransglycosylase/hydrolase genes. Genet Mol Res. 2011;10:3771-82 pubmed publisher
..Higher XTH activity can cleave down the xyloglucan-cellulose chains thus loosening fiber cell wall and promoting fiber cell elongation in wild type as compared to its mutant. ..

. [Study of the molecular basis for an individual with Bel variant due to deletion of B glycosyltransferase gene]. Zhonghua Yi Xue Yi Chuan Xue Za Zhi. 2017;34:423-426 pubmed publisher
..The 484delG mutation of the glycosyltransferase B gene has probably abolished or reduced the enzymatic activity and resulted in the Bel variant phenotype. ..
