Deciphering the enigma of lignification: precursor transport, oxidation, and the topochemistry of lignin assembly.

Abstract

Plant lignification is a tightly regulated complex cellular process that occurs via three sequential steps: the synthesis of monolignols within the cytosol; the transport of monomeric precursors across plasma membrane; and the oxidative polymerization of monolignols to form lignin macromolecules within the cell wall. Although we have a reasonable… (More)
