The iridoid pathway in Catharanthus roseus alkaloid biosynthesis
The Apocynaceae Catharanthus roseus accumulates a number of monoterpene indole alkaloids (MIAs) that originate from the coupling of the indole and the iridoid pathways. The latter pathway is usuallyExpand

Purification and Characterization of Cinnamoyl-Coenzyme A:NADP Oxidoreductase in Eucalyptus gunnii
Cinnamoyl-coenzyme A:NADP oxidoreductase (CCR, EC, the entry-point enzyme into the monolignol biosynthetic pathway, was purified to apparent electrophoretic homogeneity from differentiatingExpand

1-Deoxy-D-xylulose 5-phosphate synthase from periwinkle: cDNA identification and induced gene expression in terpenoid indole alkaloid-producing cells.
Abstract Terpenoid indole alkaloids (TIAs) arise from the indole and the monoterpene pathways. The latter route derives from isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP). We report on the isolation andExpand

Expression analysis in plant and cell suspensions of CrCKR1, a cDNA encoding a histidine kinase receptor homologue in Catharanthus roseus (L.) G. Don.
A full length cDNA (CrCKR1) encoding a hybrid histidine kinase was isolated from a Catharanthus roseus cDNA library. The kinase belongs to the subfamily of cytokinin receptors represented byExpand

Purification, molecular cloning, and cell-specific gene expression of the alkaloid-accumulation associated protein CrPS in Catharanthus roseus.
Identification of molecular markers of monoterpenoid indole alkaloid (MIA) accumulation in cell-suspension cultures of Madagascar periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus (L.) G. Don) was performed byExpand

Inhibition of the plant cytokinin transduction pathway by bacterial histidine kinase inhibitors in Catharanthus roseus cell cultures
We describe the isolation of two Catharanthus roseus cDNAs encoding proteins putatively involved in the final steps of a ‘histidine‐to‐aspartate’ phosphorelay in cytokinin (CK) signaling. TheExpand

Purification and Characterization of Geranyl Diphosphate Synthase from Vitis vinifera L. cv Muscat de Frontignan Cell Cultures
A geranyl diphosphate synthase (EC, which catalyzes the formation of geranyl diphosphate from dimethylallyl diphosphate and isopentenyl diphosphate, was isolated from Vitis vinifera L. cvExpand

Evidence for a geranyl-diphosphate synthase located within the plastids of Vitis vinifera L. cultivated in vitro
Intact plastids from cell suspensions of Vitis vinifera L. cv. Muscat de Frontignan, free of detectable contamination by other particles as judged by the distribution of organelle-specific markerExpand

Prenyltransferase compartmentation in cells of Vitis vinifera cultivated in vitro
Two prenyltransferases were located in cell cultures of Vitis vinifera. A geranyl pyrophosphate synthase (EC was associated with plastid‐like membranes whereas a farnesyl pyrophosphateExpand
