Chalcone isomerase cDNA cloning and mRNA induction by fungal elicitor, wounding and infection.

Abstract

The environmentally regulated synthesis of phenylpropanoid natural products was studied by examining the expression of the gene encoding chalcone isomerase (CHI). This enzyme catalyzes a step common to the synthesis of flavonoid pigments and isoflavonoid phytoalexins. A lambdagt11 library was constructed using mRNA from cell cultures of bean (Phaseolus… (More)
