Segmentation of Highly Lignified Zones in Wood Fiber Cross-Sections [chapter]

Bettina Selig, Cris L. Luengo Hendriks, Stig Bardage, Gunilla Borgefors
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To correlate exact levels of lignin in wood fibers to their mechanical properties, lignin autofluorescence is imaged in wood fiber cross-sections.  ...  To make a preliminary evaluation we used an image which contained 17 complete cell cross-sections. This image was segmented both automatically and manually by an expert.  ...  Cross-section of a normal lignified wood cell (a) and a wood cell with highly lignified zone (b).  ...

The Populus homeobox gene ARBORKNOX2 regulates cell differentiation during secondary growth

Juan Du, Shawn D. Mansfield, Andrew T. Groover
2009 The Plant Journal  
In the early stages of secondary growth, ARK2 is expressed broadly in the cambial zone and in terminally differentiating cell types, before becoming progressively restricted to the cambium.  ...  ARK20verexpression and synthetic miRNA-suppression' transgenics reveal positi'lle correlations between ARK2 expression level and the timing of cambium formation, the width of the cambial zone and inhibition  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We owe our thanks to Gayle Dupper for Populus tissue culture and cultivation, and Annie Mix for the glasshouse cultivation of plants.  ...
