  • New article published by Dr. Carme Rovira’s team on Nature Catalysis

    Dr. Carme Rovira’s team have published a new article on Nature Catalysis: Branching through ring contraction The branched pentose sugar d -apiose forms borate ester-polysaccharide crosslinks essential for plant cell wall development. Here the authors elucidate the multi-step reaction mechanism of UDP-apiose/UDP-xylose synthase involving decarboxylation of the UDP- d -glucuronic acid precursor coupled to pyranosyl-to-furanosyl […]
