THE similarity of major biochemical pathways throughout the animal and plant kingdoms1 presumably reflects the ancient formation of the pathways in a common ancestral counterpart of modern cell types. The pathway previously known for L-tyrosine biosynthesis in both prokaryotie and eukaryotic microorganisms (Fig. 1a) involves a dehydrogenation-decarboxylation conversion of prephenate to 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate followed by transamination in the presence of a suitable amino donor. Our data (Fig… CONTINUE READING
