Aminooxy-naphthylpropionic acid and its derivatives are inhibitors of auxin biosynthesis targeting l-tryptophan aminotransferase: structure-activity relationships.


We previously reported l-α-aminooxy-phenylpropionic acid (AOPP) to be an inhibitor of auxin biosynthesis, but its precise molecular target was not identified. In this study we found that AOPP targets TRYPTOPHAN AMINOTRANSFERASE of ARABIDOPSIS 1 (TAA1). We then synthesized 14 novel compounds derived from AOPP to study the structure-activity relationships of… (More)
