Enzymatic synthesis of 6′-deoxychalcone in cultured Glycyrrhiza echinata cells

Abstract

5-Deoxy-(iso)flavonoids are biosynthesized from 6′-deoxychalcone (isoliquiritigenin). The coaction of a reductase with chalcone synthase (CHS) has been established in soybean cells to be responsible for the synthesis of 6′-deoxychalcone. Western blot analysis of crude extracts from cultured cells of Glycyrrhiza echinata, another member of the Leguminosae… (More)
