CD BioSciences is committed to providing our customers with a wide range of specific and sensitive assays for the detection of isolated cell wall components, as well as their various molecular characteristics in vitro. Our dedicated research team is well-positioned to help you accurately characterize the composition and structure of cell wall polymers in 3D networks.
Cell walls play multiple roles throughout the life cycle of plants. They are mostly composed of proteoglycans (extensins and arabinogalactan proteins), polysaccharides (cellulose, pectin and hemicelluloses), and in some cells, polyphenols (lignin) and polyesters (suberin and cutin). A thorough investigation of cell wall components is a prerequisite for understanding how polymers affect the physicochemical and biological properties of the wall. However, the complexity of plant cell walls makes their analysis difficult.
In vitro methods are one strategy to characterize and quantify the different components of the cell wall, involving the disruption of molecular bonds between polymers by physical, chemical and/or enzymatic treatments. This approach allows for accurate characterization of the finesse composition, structure and organization of cell wall polymers in complex 3D networks, giving physiologists the opportunity to analyze and understand the interactions between the different components and facilitating cell wall-based industrial applications.
Depending on the chemical composition and the number of biomolecules to be characterized, we offer our customers a variety of analytical procedures to characterize multiple components of the plant cell wall.
With many years of service experience in the field of biophysical analysis, CD BioSciences is confident to provide comprehensive analytical services and submit detailed and accurate analytical data to our clients.
