    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Xylem; lignin; Arabidopsis; secondary cell wall; transcriptional regulation; lignin-biosynthetic gene; S G lignin ratio;

    Abstract : The ability of land plants to grow upright, bear their own weight and withstand adverse environmental conditions is largely dependent on the secondary xylem tissues of the stem. The xylem cells acquire thick secondary cell walls which are composed of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. READ MORE
