Cell Wall Characteristics of a Maize Mutant Selected for Decreased Ferulates
American Journal of Plant Sciences
The cross-linked nature of plant cell walls provides structural integrity for continued growth and development, but limits degradation and utilization by ruminants. In grasses a major cross-linking component is ferulic acid that is incorporated into cell walls as an ester linked residue on arabinoxylans. Ferulates can become coupled to each other and to lignin forming a highly cross-linked matrix of carbohydrates and lignin. Seedling ferulate ester mutants (sfe) were produced in maize using thedoi:10.4236/ajps.2018.93034 fatcat:jrz2z6thgndoleg7vvio4ruee4
