Abstract

Radiotracer and enzyme studies have established the main features of pathways leading to lignin monomers in plants, while investigations on enzyme-mediated model systems have elucidated the nature of their polymerization to lignins. Since no definitive lignin structural assignment seems possible, owing to the randomness of the linkages, this research has principally benefited plant biochemistry.
