Structural Characteristics of Cell Walls of Forage Grasses - Their Nutritional Evaluation for Ruminants - - Review -
Kenji Iiyama, Thi Bach Tuyet Lam
The walls of all higher plants are organized as a cellulosic, fibrillar phase embedded in a matrix phase composed of non-cellulosic polysaccharides, some proteins and, in most secondary walls, lignin. At the effective utilization of plant biomass, qualitative and quantitative analyses of plant cell walls are essential. Structural features of individual components are being clarified using newly developed equipments and techniques. However,
