Bioorthogonal click chemistry was commissioned to visualize the plant cell wall lignification process in vivo. This approach uses chemical reporter-tagged monolignol mimics that can be metabolically incorporated into lignins and subsequently derivatized via copper-assisted or copper-free click reactions.
