Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: In order to understand the effects of up- and down-regulating genes on the lignin biosynthetic pathway, the intracacies of the pathway should be known. Many of the genes are long-known, although the actual substrates of some have been clarified in planta. Others are surprisingly new. All of the major enzymes from PAL to CAD will be covered.
