Divergent and Overlapping Function of Five 4-Coumarate/Coenzyme A Ligases from Populus tomentosa

Abstract

4-Coumarate/coenzyme A ligases (4CLs) play key roles in the biosynthesis of plant secondary compounds and act at the divergence point from general phenylpropanoid metabolism to several major branch pathways, such as lignins and flavonoids. In this study, five 4CL genes in Populus tomentosa were cloned and characterized. Quantitative polymerase chain… (More)
