X-ray scattering of wild type and poplar variants with and without catalytic delignification (CDL). Upper panels: Control, untreated swollen in TFA at –20°C, and untreated swollen in TFA at –20°C, and heated to 55°C. Lower panels: Catalytically delignified (CDL) control, CDL material swollen in TFA at –20°C, and CDL material swollen in TFA at –20°C, and heated to 55°C. Plots of relative intensities are overlays of control (black), swollen (blue), and gelatinized (red) materials.WT = (Populus tremula × P. alba cv. INRA 717-1B4), high S-lignin = pAtC4H:AtF5H1, high G-lignin = pAtC4H:PtF5H2 RNAi, and high OH-G-lignin = p35S:PtCOMTa RNAi.
