Perturbing the lignin biosynthetic pathway provides a tool for understanding the complex process of lignification. Caffeic acid O-methyltransferase (COMT) is required to produce syringyl units in lignins. Down-regulating the expression of its gene in poplar dramatically affects the lignin composition. 2D and 3D NMR investigations detail structural differences between lignins from a control and COMT-deficient poplars obtained by means of two independent transformation techniques. This first… CONTINUE READING
