Identification of gene regulatory networks controlling cell wall thickening could advance cellulosic biofuels production [Registered]

The three key components, found in plant tissue xylem, provide plants with mechanical strength and waterproof cells that transport water. Working in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, the researchers explored how a large number of interconnected transcription factors regulate xylem and cell wall thickening. Findings are published in the journal Nature.…
