Xyloglucan endotransglycosylase/hydrolase

Regulation of cotton fiber elongation by xyloglucan endotransglycosylase/hydrolase genes

M. Y. Shao, Wang, X. D., Ni, M., Bibi, N., Yuan, S. N., Malik, W., Zhang, H. P., Liu, Y. X., and Hua, S. J., Regulation of cotton fiber elongation by xyloglucan endotransglycosylase/hydrolase genes, vol. 10, pp. 3771-3782, 2011.

Ligon lintless mutant (li1li1) with super-short fibers (5-8 mm in length) and its wild type (Li1Li1) with normal fibers (30 mm in length) were used to study the function of xyloglucan endotransglycosylase/hydrolase (XTH) genes during fiber elongation in cotton. Wild-type cotton attained the fiber elongation stage earlier (5 days post-anthesis, DPA), than the Ligon lintless mutant (12 DPA) with a higher fiber elongation velocity of about 1.76 mm/day.
