Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to isolated nucleic acids encoding a feruloyl-CoA:monolignol transferase and feruloyl-CoA:monolignol transferase enzymes. The isolated nucleic acids and/or the enzymes enable incorporation of monolignol ferulates into the lignin of plants, where such monolignol ferulates include, for example, p-coumaryl ferulate, coniferyl ferulate, and/or sinapyl ferulate.. The invention also includes methods and plants that include nucleic acids encoding a feruloyl-CoA:monolignol transferase enzyme and/or feruloyl-CoA:monolignol transferase enzymes.
(FR)L'invention concerne des acides nucléiques isolés codant pour une féruloyl-CoA:monolignol transférase et des enzymes de féruloyl-CoA:monolignol transférase. Les acides nucléiques isolés et/ou les enzymes permettent l'incorporation de férulates de monolignols dans la lignine des plantes, où ces férulates de monolignols incluent par exemple, le férulate de p-coumaryle, le férulate de coniféryle et/ou le férulate de sinapyle. L'invention inclut aussi des procédés et des plantes qui incluent des acides nucléiques codant pour une enzyme féruloyl-CoA:monolignol transférase et/ou des enzymes de féruloyl-CoA:monolignol transférase.
