This will build on existing uranic capability, which covers the analysis of a range of uranium bearing compounds.
Since PG only hydrolyses homogalacturonan regions whose uranic acid residues have been previously demethylated by PME (de Assis et al., 2001) and since pectins are synthesized and deposited on the cell wall largely esterified (Staehelin and Moore, 1995), the negative charges generated by PME are necessary for Ca to bind onto the cell wall and to bring out firming effects of Ca.
