Chalcone synthase (CHS) catalyses the first dedicated reaction in the flavanoid biosynthesis pathway, involving three rounds of condensation of malonyl-CoA onto 4-coumaroyl-CoA. Flavanoids are known to be involved in several important physiological processes in plants, such as flower pigmentation (Koes et al. 1990), UV stress protection (Wienand et al. 1986), nodulation (Recourt et el. 1992) and pollen development (Taylor and Jorgensen 1992; van der Meer et al. 1992). Chalcone synthase genes… CONTINUE READING
