fe·ru·lic acid

A compound, C10H10O4, forming a component of plant cell walls and used in the industrial manufacture of vanillin.

[From New Latin Ferula, plant genus including asafetida (since it was first isolated from asafetida), from Latin ferula, giant fennel; see fescue.]

These include the retention of exoacting cellobiohydrolase (CBH) cellulase genes, but, similar to Postia placenta, the absence of carbohydrate esterase family 1 (CE 1), a family containing feruloyl esterases (EC that might be involved in decoupling xylan from lignin, particularly in the decay of grasses [16].
