The cytochrome P450 CYP79A1 catalyzes the conversion of l-tyrosine to p-hydroxyphenylacetaldoxime, the first step in the biosynthetic pathway of the cyanogenic glucoside dhurrin in Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench. We have demonstrated that introduction of CYP79A1 into Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. results in the production of the tyrosine-derived glucosinolate p-hydroxybenzylglucosinolate (p-OHBG), not found in wild-type A. thaliana (Bak et al., 1999, Plant J. 20: 663–671). In the present study… CONTINUE READING
