X-Ray scattering study of cellulosic arrangements in plant cell wall materials
MetadataShow full item record
Plant cell walls are the most important source of the polymer cellulose. The cell wall contains crystalline cellulose microfibrils embedded in a matrix of amorphous polymers. The most important of these amorphous polymers are the lignins and the hemi-celluloses. In this thesis we concentrate on the use of wide angle x-ray scattering as a tool to understand the important arrangements of cellulose in cell walls. Other experimental tools are used to supplement this information.

Attachment of Salmonella strains to a plant cell wall model is modulated by surface characteristics and not by specific carbohydrate interactionsTan, M.; Moore, S.; Tabor, R.; Fegan, N.; Rahman, S.; Dykes, Gary (2016)Background: Processing of fresh produce exposes cut surfaces of plant cell walls that then become vulnerable to human foodborne pathogen attachment and contamination, particularly by Salmonella enterica. Plant cell walls ...

(2010)Qualitative and quantitative understanding of the chemical linkages between the three major biochemical components (cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin) of plant cell walls is crucial to the understanding of cell wall ...
Role of fimbriae, flagella and cellulose on the attachment of Salmonella Typhimurium ATCC 14028 to plant cell wall modelsTan, M.; White, A.; Rahman, S.; Dykes, Gary (2016)Cases of foodborne disease caused by Salmonella are frequently associated with the consumption of minimally processed produce. Bacterial cell surface components are known to be important for the attachment of bacterial ...
