Photosynthetic carbon capture by terrestrial plants represents a major sink for atmospheric CO(2), ultimately terminating in the synthesis of a secondary plant cell wall-a complex matrix of polysaccharides intricately linked to lignin. The production and co-ordinated deposition of this lignocellulosic composite confers both protective and structural properties to the plant cell. The inherent properties of this complex cell wall also represent a major obstacle for its effective industrial… CONTINUE READING
