Coordinate expression of genes involved in catechin biosynthesis in Polygonum hydropiper cells


Suspension-cultured cells of Polygonum hydropiper contain a high level of catechins (H cells), unlike tissues of the parental plants, which express a low level. A cell line (L cells) containing a tenfold lower level of catechins than H cells was isolated from H cells. To determine the mechanism regulating catechin biosynthesis, we have investigated the… (More)
