Title: A dominant negative approach to reduce xylan in plants

Abstract

The most abundant and renewable source of carbohydrates is found in the lignocellulosic biomass of plants, contained in the cell walls surrounding plant cells. However, the plant cell wall has evolved to be rigid and nearly impenetrable, making the conversion of plant biomass to simple sugars a laborious and expensive endeavor. After cellulose, a class of polysaccharides called hemicelluloses make up the majority of the carbohydrate content of plant biomass. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
