Gallic acid and hydrolysable tannins are formed in birch leaves from an intermediate compound of the shikimate pathway

Abstract

Gallic acid is the starting material for hydrolysable tannin synthesis, but the mechanism of its formation in higher plants has not been known. To elucidate the pathway of gallic acid synthesis in the leaves of mountain birch (Betula pubescens ssp. czerepanovii), we studied the effects of glyphosate (N-[phosphonomethyl]-glycine) on the levels of individual… (More)
