Abstract [en]

Xylan is an abundant constituent of hemicelluloses. It has a complex structure and is bound to lignin via covalent bonds. These bonds and xylan structure can be altered to modify cell wall properties using various enzymes. These enzymes can be obtained from different organisms. Certain wood degrading fungi have been reported to produce enzymes acting on xylan such as xylanases or α-glucuronidases. We aimed to target these enzymes to the secondary cell wall of plants. This was achieved by fusing the enzyme coding sequence with plant signal sequence. The targeting was verified by analyzing the localization of the target protein with the fluorescent tag GFP.
