Molecular cloning and characterization of two differentially expressed Cellulose synthase gene isoforms in Leucaena leucocephala: A pulp yielding tree species

Abstract

Leucaena leucocephala is fast growing leguminous tree species, acclimatized to variety of soil and climatic conditions. It is widely used for pulp production in India. Pulp mainly consists of cellulose, which is a simple polymer of unbranched β-1, 4-linked glucan chains. The polymerization of glucose residues into a β-1, 4-linked backbone is catalysed by… (More)
