Synthesis of cell wall components in maize internodes

Proceedings of the XVI International Grassland Congress, 4-11 October 1989, Nice, France: 759-760
Synthesis of cell wall components in maize internodes
Changes in cell wall composition of growing internodes of brown-midrib (bm3), low-lignin and normal maize (Zea mays) were examined and related to activity of catechol O-methyl transferase (OMT). Internode from bm3 and normal maize was divided into a meristematic region and successively more mature segments above the meristem. Concn of fibre components increased acropetally from the base of the internode, as did most alkali-labile phenolic monomers.
