WARF: P170158US02

Inventors: John Ralph, Steven Karlen, Brian Fox, Emily Beebe, Craig Bingman, Rebecca Smith

The Invention
The invention relates to feruloyl-CoA:monolignol transferase enzymes and nucleic acids encoding the feruloyl-CoA:monolignol transferase enzymes. The enzymes and/or the nucleic acids enable incorporation of monolignol ferulates into the lignin of plants. The monolignol ferulates include, for example, p-coumaryl ferulate, coniferyl ferulate, and/or sinapyl ferulate.
