Example text

The Ia phase was previously thought to be from the built-in strains during cellulose biosynthesis whereas the Ib phase was from crystallization in an entirely strain-free environment. The strong relationship between Ib/Ia ratio and fiber elongation by our FTIR suggest that such a relationship may be related to the changes in turgor pressure during fiber elongation. Other factors, such as interactions among cellulose chains, the arrangement of Tcs (cellulose-synthesizing terminal enzyme complexes), and the affinity of other polysaccharides for cellulose, may also affect the biphasic character and their conversion, but their effects are not clearly understood at this point.
