Gene for Zipped Lignin Production in Plants
IntroductionLignin is an important plant cell wall component that provides critical structural support to plants. Native lignin is very difficult to break down by chemical or enzymatic means, which makes the task of producing paper and biofuels from plant material extremely difficult. However, lignin with ester bonds, called “zipped” lignin,...
Gene For Zipped Lignin Production In Plants
IntroductionLignin, an abundant polymer of vascular plants that provides structural integrity and resistance to chemical and enzymatic damage to the plant cell wall, is the second most abundant polymer on earth and critical to the strength and survival of terrestrial plants. Unfortunately, its mechanical strength and resistance to chemical degradation,...
