Putative lignin biosynthesis pathway in Brachypodium distachyon. Inputs from phenylalanine and tyrosine appear to merge early in the pathway, at the pool of p-coumaric acid. This early convergence renders the observation curious that feeding labeled phenylalanine or tyrosine results in distinctly different incorporations of label into different lignin monomers. The pathway through C3H (dashed) is tentative
