  • Brookhaven Lab biochemist Chang-Jun Liu (seated) with study co-authors Yunjun Zhao (right) and Yanzhai Song (rear), both postdocs in Liu's lab, reviewing data from a study of how different electron-shuttle proteins affect the construction of various plant cell-wall building blocks. Co-authors not shown: Mingyue Gou, a former Brookhaven Lab postdoc who is now a principal investigator at Henan Agricultural University, China; Xiaoman Yang, a Ph.D. student with the South China Botanical Garden, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and a former visiting scholar at Brookhaven; and Xiuzhi Ran of China's Chongqing University of Technology and a former visiting scholar at Brookhaven Lab.

  • The team—including Chang-Jun Liu (front), Yanzhai Song (rear), and Yunjun Zhao (rear right)—used variations of Arabidopsis plants lacking genes for specific electron-shuttle proteins to confirm their hypothesis that one of these shuttle proteins, CB5D, is exclusively involved in the production of S-lignin building blocks.

  • Cross-sections of Arabidopsis stems stained to show total lignin (top) and S-lignin content (bottom) in wild type plants (left) and plants lacking the gene for an electron-shuttle protein known as CB5D (right). Knocking out this CB5D gene does not impair total lignin content but specifically lowers S-lignin subunits.
