The branched chain amino acids-valine, leucine, and isoleucine-are among the 10 essential amino acids that are not synthesized in mammals. Therefore, biosynthesis of branched chain amino acids in plants is of interest due to their importance in human and animal diets. In addition, in the early 198Os, two new classes of herbicides (imidazolinones and sulfonylureas) were introduced that inhibit the branched chain amino acid biosynthetic pathway (Levitt et al., 1981; Orwick et al., 1983; Ray, 1984… CONTINUE READING
