• residues
  • In-vitro binding between WAKs and pectin is facilitated by charged oxygen groups on pure pectin fragments and charged residues on the ECM of WAKs. (wikipedia.org)
  • This suggestion that charge is responsible for the preferable binding of WAKs to de-esterified pectins (negatively charged) was shown in a mutation in cationic residues in a WAK1 gene to neutral residues which resulted to the loss of binding properties to the de-esterified pectins.
