Cinnamoyl CoA:NADP oxidoreductase (CCR, EC 1.2.1.44) catalyzes the conversion of cinnamoyl CoA esters to their corresponding cinnamaldehydes, i.e. the first specific step in the synthesis of the lignin monomers. The cloning of a cDNA encoding CCR in Eucalyptus gunnii (EUCCR) is reported here. The identity of the EUCCR cDNA was demonstrated by comparison with peptide sequence data from purified CCR and functional expression of the recombinant enzyme in Escherichia coli.
