IRX15/IRX15L/IGXM (IPR006514)

Short name: IRX15/IRX15L/IGXM

Family relationships



This entry includes IRREGULAR XYLEM IRX15/IRX15L and GLUCURONOXYLAN METHYLTRANSFERASE1 (GXM1), GXM2 and GXM3 from plants. GXMs and IRX15/15L are all expressed in secondary wall-forming cells and they are all involved in xylan biosynthesis. However, they may have different functions [PMID: 24576763]. GXM1/GXM2/GXM3 are methyltransferases catalysing 4-O-methylation of GlcA side chains on xylan [PMID: 23045523, PMID: 24576763]. The function of IRX15/IRX15L is not clear.
