Cellulose synthase 7 APEFYFALK-acid
Cellulose synthase 7 is an isoform of cellulose synthase, a crucial enzyme involved in the synthesis of cellulose. Cellulose is a biomolecule made of unbranched polymer chains which consist of β-(1-4)-linked glucose residues. Cellulose is a component of primary and secondary cell walls in green plants, some algae and oomycetes.

Cellulose synthase is a crucial enzyme involved in the synthesis of cellulose. Cellulose is an aggregation of unbranched polymer chains made of β-(1-4)-linked glucose residues, and is a component of primary and secondary cell walls – functioning to primarily maintain strength and shape in cells.
Cellulose is synthesised by large cellulose synthase complexes (CSCs), which consist of synthase protein isoforms (CesA) that are arranged into a unique hexagonal structure.
Specifically the isoform cellulose synthase 7 takes part in secondary cell wall cellulose synthesis
