Plant Cell Wall Research

Plant Cell Wall Research

The plant cell wall is mainly composed of cellulose, hemicellulose, proteins, and lignin, and its unique mechanical properties provide additional force protection for plant cells, enabling plants to withstand various stresses in different environments. In addition, it is also an important component in ensuring the benign growth and development of plants, providing growth, development, and communication functions for plant cells. Therefore, analyzing the cell wall structure using biophysical analysis techniques can help to study plant physiology in depth.

CD BioSciences, as an expert in biophysics, has a professional technical team and rich experience in plant cell walls and is committed to exploring the mechanisms and structural properties of plant growth and development.

Applications in Plant Cell Wall Research

CD BioSciences, a specialized biotechnology company providing biophysical analysis services, combines botanical and biophysical technologies and is committed to providing a wide range of researchers with powerful tools for plant research and accelerating the process of exploring plant cell walls.

Compositional Analysis

Plant cell walls consist of complex polysaccharide polymers involved in maintaining cell morphology and enhancing cell mechanical strength. We can provide professional Raman spectroscopic techniques to obtain in situ information on the chemistry of plant cell wall regions and the structural properties of major components, including the distribution of cellulose microregions, enzymatic fermentation of natural cellulose, the spatial orientation of molecular chains, molecular morphology, crystallinity, and polycrystalline transformation in the plant cell wall. Nowadays, our spectroscopic technique has become a powerful tool to study the problems related to the chemistry of plant cell wall microregions and is widely used in plant cell wall research.

Structural Observation

We use Raman spectroscopic imaging and infrared spectroscopy combined with microscopy as important tools for structural studies of plant cell walls because they provide information about the structure and composition of molecules in their natural state. Our Raman imaging technique allows our client to study the distribution and content of lignin and cellulose in plant cell walls, providing a new method for in situ analysis of the chemical structure and ultrastructure of cell walls in the efficient conversion or utilization of agroforestry biomass.

Mechanical Force Study

As the protective layer of plant cells, the plant cell wall has important mechanical properties. Its unique lattice structure and structure composed of multiple substances, extremely strong elasticity and toughness as well as overall stability after localized deformation enable it to provide effective protection and support in changing environments, providing a solid foundation for excellent plant growth and development. We have nanoindentation technology, which can help customers obtain the longitudinal modulus of elasticity and hardness property indexes of plant fiber cells, and further analyze the effects of cell wall lignin content and distribution, as well as cell wall ultrastructure, on the mechanical properties of the cell wall.
