They produce different enzymes that break down lignin and release cellulose and hemicellulose from plants.
Wool, which is sheep hair, is made of animal proteins, while cotton is made of plant cellulose - the main part of a plant's cell wall.
The float is then given two coats of cellulose paint to seal it.
Dietary fibre consists of plant material such as cellulose , hemicellulose, pectin, polysaccharides, gums, mucilage and lignin.
Plants are living things with cellulose cell walls, lacking nervous or sensory organs.
Several recent publications have described the properties of composites of bacterial cellulose with plant cell wall polysaccharides.
A study by Dr Angus Davison has helped to uncover new facts about the most common organic compound found on earth - a substance called cellulose .
It is composed primarily of cellulose , a complex carbohydrate made from glucose.
It is found on a variety of substrates containing cellulose including paper and plant compost.
The experiments showed, inter alia, that pyritization can occur within cellulose cell walls.
