(54)    Title

Polynucleotides, DNA constructs and methods for the alteration of plant lignin content and/or composition

(57)    Abstract

Polynucleotides, DNA constructs and methods are disclosed for the modification of lignin content in plant tissues. Plants are transformed with a DNA molecule encoding an active S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase (SAMdc) enzyme. The over-expression of a SAMdc gene in the plant's vascular

system leads to decreased S -adenosylmethionine availability and consequently

to an overall decrease in lignin content. Plant transformants harboring a SAMdc coding nucleic acid molecule are expected to demonstrate decreased
