Characterization of Plant Cell Wall Components

Characterization of Plant Cell Wall Components

The cell wall is an important structure of plant cells with complexity and heterogeneity, along with a high level of spatio-temporal dynamics. Previous studies have shown that the structure and constitution of the cell wall differ between cell types and between developmental stages. Given the complexity of plant cell wall structures, the analysis of its composition remains a challenging task. Developing innovative techniques to study cell wall components, tissue structure and the interaction between different components is very crucial to understanding the biology of cell walls.

At CD BioSciences, researchers have developed a variety of methods to purify, quantify, and characterize the major components (proteins, lignin, and polysaccharides) of plant cell walls. These methods can be classified into two categories: in vitro and in situ characterization of cell wall polymers. In vitro methods allow accurate characterization of the composition, structure and organization of cell wall polymers. In situ methods are non-destructive and are suitable for screening large numbers of plant cell wall populations for industrial applications. With these two complementary approaches, we can help our customers precisely analyze cell wall components and understand their interactions.
