UNLABELLED BACKGROUND The inherent recalcitrance of lignocellulosic biomass is one of the major economic hurdles for the production of fuels and chemicals from biomass. Additionally, lignin is recognized as having a negative impact on enzymatic hydrolysis of biomass, and as a result much interest has been placed on modifying the lignin pathway to improve bioconversion of lignocellulosic feedstocks. RESULTS Down-regulation of the caffeic acid 3-O-methyltransferase (COMT) gene in the lignin… CONTINUE READING
