Activation of mitogen activated protein kinases (MAPKs) is involved in many abiotic and biotic stress responses including plant defense. MAPK acitvation is based on the dual phosphorylation of threonine (T) and tyrosin (Y) residues (T-x-Y motif) in ...

Homogalacturonans, the most abundant pectins of the plant cell wall, can be methylesterified at the C-6 position of the galacturonic acid residues. Demethylesterification of cell wall pectins is catalyzed by apoplastic pectin methylesterases (PMEs). ...
