CYP703 is a cytochrome P450 family specific to land plants. Typically, each plant species contains a single CYP703. Arabidopsis thaliana CYP703A2 is expressed in the anthers of developing flowers. Expression is initiated at the tetrad stage and restricted to microspores and to the tapetum cell layer. Arabidopsis CYP703A2 knockout lines showed impaired pollen development and a partial male-sterile phenotype. Scanning electron and transmission electron microscopy of pollen from the knockout…

CYP704B1 Is a Long-Chain Fatty Acid ω-Hydroxylase Essential for Sporopollenin Synthesis in Pollen of Arabidopsis1[W][OA]
TLDR
It is shown that different classes of hydroxylated fatty acids serve as essential compounds for sporopollenin formation, and the genetic relationships between CYP704B1, CYP703A2, and another exine gene, MALE STERILITY2, which encodes a fatty acyl reductase, were explored.
Rice CYP703A3, a cytochrome P450 hydroxylase, is essential for development of anther cuticle and pollen exine.
TLDR
The results suggest that CYP703A3 represents a conserved and diversified biochemical pathway for in-chain hydroxylation of lauric acid required for the development of male organ in higher plants.
Cytochrome P450 Family Member CYP704B2 Catalyzes the ω -Hydroxylation of Fatty Acids and Is Required for Anther Cutin Biosynthesis and Pollen Exine Formation in Rice[W][OA]
TLDR
This study indicates that the ω -hydroxylation pathway of fatty acids relying on this ancient CYP704B family, conserved from moss to angiosperms, is essential for the formation of both cuticle and exine during plant male reproductive and spore development.
Running head: CYP704, a cytochrome P450 in pollen exine formation
TLDR
Based on a phenotypic mutant screen in Arabidopsis thaliana, a cytochrome P450, designated CYP704B1, is identified as being essential for exine development, resulting in pollen with remarkably similar zebra phenotypes, distinct from those of other known exine mutants.
CYP77A19 and CYP77A20 characterized from Solanum tuberosum oxidize fatty acids in vitro and partially restore the wild phenotype in an Arabidopsis thaliana cutin mutant.
Cutin and suberin represent lipophilic polymers forming plant/environment interfaces in leaves and roots. Despite recent progress in Arabidopsis, there is still a lack on information concerning cutin
Overexpression of a novel cytochrome P450 monooxygenase gene, CYP704B1, from Panax ginseng increase biomass of reproductive tissues in transgenic Arabidopsis
TLDR
The results suggest that PgCYP704B1 has a conserved role during male reproduction for fatty acid biosynthesis and its overexpression increases cutin monomers in siliques that eventually could be used for seed production.
A Novel Fatty Acyl-CoA Synthetase Is Required for Pollen Development and Sporopollenin Biosynthesis in Arabidopsis[C][W]
TLDR
It is proposed that ACOS5 encodes an enzyme that participates in a conserved and ancient biochemical pathway required for sporopollenin monomer biosynthesis that may also include the Arabidopsis CYP703A2 and MS2 enzymes.
Analysis of TETRAKETIDE α-PYRONE REDUCTASE Function in Arabidopsis thaliana Reveals a Previously Unknown, but Conserved, Biochemical Pathway in Sporopollenin Monomer Biosynthesis[C][W]
TLDR
Two closely related genes encoding oxidoreductases are specifically and transiently expressed in tapetal cells during microspore development in Arabidopsis anthers and identify a conserved biosynthetic pathway leading to hydroxylated α-pyrone compounds that were previously unknown to be sporopollenin precursors.
A BAHD acyltransferase is expressed in the tapetum of Arabidopsis anthers and is involved in the synthesis of hydroxycinnamoyl spermidines.
TLDR
A methyltransferase gene (At1g67990) which co-regulated with SHT during flower development, was shown to be involved in the O-methylation of spermidine conjugates by analyzing the consequences of its repression in RNAi plants and by characterizing the methylation activity of the recombinant enzyme.
Conserved metabolic steps for sporopollenin precursor formation in tobacco and rice.
TLDR
Investigation of the metabolic steps catalyzed by the anther-specific acyl-CoA synthetase, polyketide synthase and tetraketide α-pyrone reductase resulted in the production of reduced tetRAketid α-pyrones which appear to represent common sporopollenin fatty-acyl precursors essential for male fertility in taxonomically distinct plant species.

Encoding of a cytochrome P450-dependent lauric acid monooxygenase by CYP703A1 specifically expressed in the floral buds of petunia hybrida.
TLDR
CYP703A1 cDNA was specifically expressed in the early stage of flower development and appeared to participate in the monooxygenation of fatty acids.
Cloning, Expression in Yeast, and Functional Characterization of CYP81B1, a Plant Cytochrome P450 That Catalyzes In-chain Hydroxylation of Fatty Acids*
TLDR
A systematic exploration of its function revealed that it specifically catalyzes the hydroxylation of medium chain saturated fatty acids, capric, lauric, and myristic acids.

TLDR
The chemical tagging of a cytochrome P-450-dependent lauric acid omega-hydroxylase from clofibrate-treated Vicia sativa seedlings with [1-14C]11-dodecynoic acid allowed the isolation of a full-length cDNA designated CYP94A1, which was strong regioselectivity shifted with sulphur-containing substrates.

TLDR
Findings strongly suggest that CYP724B2 and CYP90B3 function in the early C-22 hydroxylation steps of brassinosteroid biosynthetic pathway in tomato.
Cytochrome P450-dependent fatty acid hydroxylases in plants
TLDR
The best characterized fatty acid hydroxylases are presented and their possible roles in plant defense and development, fatty acid catabolism, plant reproduction and detoxification are discussed.
Callose synthase (CalS5) is required for exine formation during microgametogenesis and for pollen viability in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that one of these genes, CalS5, encodes a callose synthase which is responsible for the synthesis of callose deposited at the primary cell wall of meiocytes, tetrads and microspores, and the expression of this gene is essential for exine formation in pollen wall.
Disruption of the novel plant protein NEF1 affects lipid accumulation in the plastids of the tapetum and exine formation of pollen, resulting in male sterility in Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
Motif analysis revealed that NEF1 contains prokaryotic membrane lipoprotein lipid attachment sites that are involved in maintaining cell envelope integrity, and it is predicted that the Nef1 encodes a membrane protein that maintains the envelope integrity in the plastids.
Methyl jasmonate induces lauric acid omega-hydroxylase activity and accumulation of CYP94A1 transcripts but does not affect epoxide hydrolase activities in vicia sativa seedlings
TLDR
Treatment of etiolated Vicia sativa seedlings by the plant hormone methyl jasmonate (MetJA) led to an increase of cytochrome P450 content and transcripts coding for CYP94A1, a fatty acid omega-hydroxylase, had already accumulated after 1 h of exposure to MetJA.
