High impact information on ATOMT1


Biological context of ATOMT1


Anatomical context of ATOMT1

  • Atomt1 is a knockout mutant and the expression profile of the AtOMT1 gene has been determined as well as the consequences of the mutation on lignins, on soluble phenolics, on cell wall digestibility, and on the expression of the genes involved in monolignol biosynthesis [3].
