> OH, oh hydrolyzing multiple fructan linkages has been purified (38). The importance of structure in metabolism was observed when remobilization of stem reserves occurred in wheat having limited photosynthesis because there was an increase in (2-6) hydrolytic activity rather than (2-1) hydrolytic activity (39). Specificity of linkage hydrolysis suggests that control of metabolism might will be related to the dominate linkage pattern of stored reserves.
