Catharanthus roseus G-box binding factors 1 and 2 act as repressors of strictosidine synthase gene expression in cell cultures


The enzyme encoded by the strictosidine synthase (Str) gene catalyses a key step in the biosynthesis of therapeutically valuable terpenoid indole alkaloids. In Catharanthus roseus the Str gene was shown to be regulated by a wide variety of signals including auxin, methyl jasmonate and fungal elicitors in cell suspension cultures and by tissue-specific… (More)
