This article considers a graphene-based quasi-one-dimensional system and explores the impact of structural perturbations on the electronic and transport properties of the material. Two phenomenologically different quantum mechanical approaches are used to describe the perturbation, namely the spectral weight of the unfolded band structure and the transmission coefficient of the propagated electrons. We show that these two descriptions present strong qualitative similarities and yield complementary information for the understanding of the induced electronic alterations.
