How to use "Endocarp" in context?

In cellulosic biomass, the endocarp (innermost layer) is the most important layer from a transport perspective. The endocarp segregates the cellulose fibers into lignin groups, which can be easily burned for energy. The endocarp also helps to protect the cellulose fibers from degradation and from being invaded by fungal spores.
