Currently, one of the most important priorities for the sugarcane cultivars development used as renewable energy source is the lignocellulosic biomass modification; meaning, change the principal negative factor for the ethanol cellulosic production, the lignin. Continuing the BIOEN project coordinated by Prof. Dr. Paulo Mazzafera (proc. FAPESP 08/58035-6), this proposal aims to evaluate...
Sugarcane represents a high potential as crop to cellulosic ethanol yield. However, lignin, which constitutes the secondary cell wall, is a recalcitrant biopolymer to saccharification. The metabolic engineer allows manipulate lignin biosynthesis pathway such a way that improve the cellulosic ethanol yield. Two genes related to the lignin pathway, SHINE and F5H, were integrated into rice...
The dirigent proteins are responsible for the role of radical-radical stereo-selective coupling of monolignols, lignan/lignin precursors. Several transcripts with DP-like domains were identified in plants, but they were not functionally characterized. In the work attached to this propose, 39 DPs-like, previously unknown, were identified in sugarcane. Different parts of culms from sugarc...
