Abstract [en]

Lignin is the second most abundant biopolymer and the length and complexity ofthe lignin molecule makes it a complicated molecule to study. However it playsan important role in using plant biomass for bioenergy matters since it is themajor rate limiting step. Research is now focused on engineering or lowering theamount of the molecule in planta. In this master thesis the transcription factorsinvolved in related pathways of the lignification are being studied in order todetermine transcription factors specific for the lignin pathway. This is done usinga tobacco protoplast assay system. There was at least one transcription factorthat was determined to be more lignin pathway specific. There were also someadditional findings were some transcription factors could strongly activatepromoters in pathways related to the lignin biosynthesis that had not previouslybeen described. The results described in this thesis can be an importantcontribution to the puzzle of understanding how lignin is formed.
