Biotechnological approaches for producing aryltetralin lignans from Linum species


The genus Linum includes more than 230 globally distributed species, which have attracted great interest as they grow rapidly and are already sources of commercially important products, e.g. flax and linseed oil. Furthermore, they contain lignans such as podophyllotoxin (PTOX), deoxypodophyllotoxin (a precursor of both PTOX and 6-methoxypodophyllotoxin, the… (More)
