Title: Tissue specific reduction of lignin

Abstract

The present invention provides an expression cassette comprising a polynucleotide that encodes a protein that diverts a monolignol precursor from a lignin biosynthesis pathway in the plant, which is operably linked to a heterologous promoter. Also provided are methods of engineering a plant having reduced lignin content, as well as plant cells, plant parts, and plant tissues from such engineered plants.
