Lignin Extraction and Quantification, a Tool to Monitor Defense Reaction at the Plant Cell Wall Level
Authors:  Sebastian T. Schenk and Adam Schikora, date: 03/20/2015, view: 4549, Q&A: 0
Lignin is a complex polymer of phenolic compounds (monolignins), which contributes to the rigidity of the plant cell wall. Lignification is essential for plant development, however it is also one of the mechanisms of plant defense. Accumulation of ...
Staining of Callose Depositions in Root and Leaf Tissues
Authors:  Sebastian T. Schenk and Adam Schikora, date: 03/20/2015, view: 8591, Q&A: 0
The plant cell wall is a physical barrier, which fulfills a plethora of functions, for example it can efficiently prevent pathogen’s entry into the cell. In addition, its changing composition contributes to plants inducible defense mechanisms. This ...
