The occurrence and distribution of (1,4)-beta-galactan in wood cells of poplar (Populus trichocarpa Torr. & A. Gray x P. koreana Rehder) were studied by immunolabeling with a monoclonal antibody (LM5) specific to this carbohydrate epitope. Immunofluorescence microscopy revealed exclusive binding of the LM5 antibody to tension wood fibers, indicating the specific presence of (1,4)-beta-galactan in cell walls of this wood cell type. Higher magnifications achieved with the fluorescence microscope… CONTINUE READING
