A key gene G regulating plant cell-wall recalcitrance and sugar release

An Amino Acid Transporter enhancing lignin quality and sugar release
ID: 201403245

The gene, an amino acid transporter, can used to (i) alter glucose and xylose release, (ii) alter syringyl to guaiacyl ratio in cell walls (iii) manipulate cellulose fiber extension, cell death, lignin content, and secondary cell wall formation, (iv) alter hexose and pentose sugar composition in the cell wall for biofuel production, (v) enhance resistance to pests and pathogens (vi) enhance plant growth, and the promoter associated with this gene can used for tissue specific gene expression.

Key gene regulating plant cell wall recalcitrance
ID: 20160053275

This disclosure provides plants having desirable levels of lignin synthesis, sugar release, S/G ratio, and resistance to stress and pathogens; methods of selecting plants with such desirable levels of lignin synthesis, sugar release, S/G ratio, and resistance to stress and pathogens; methods of genetically modifying plants to modulate lignin synthesis, sugar release, S/G ratio, and resistance to stress and pathogens; and uses of such plants. The inventors have determined that the expression and/or activity of POPTR_0014s08530, a gene encoding an Angustifolia/CtBP transcription factor, modulates lignin synthesis, sugar release, S/G ratio, and resistance to stress and pathogens in plants. Plants with lignin synthesis, sugar release, S/G ratio, and resistance to stress and pathogens, based on modulation of the expression or activity of the POPTR_0014s08530 gene, have divergent uses including pulp and paper production, and ethanol/biofuel production.
