    Abstract : Pectin methylesterases (PMEs) catalyze the demethylesterification of cell wall polygalacturonans, and this is thought to play important roles in cell wall extensibility and intercellular adhesion. In addition, PMEs influence many physiological processes, such as stem elongation, root development, fertilization, fruit softening, and xylogenesis. READ MORE
