Terpenoid phytoalexins and other defense compounds play an important role in disease resistance in a variety of plant families but have been most widely studied in solanaceous species. The rate-limiting step in terpenoid phytoalexin production is mediated by 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HMGR), which catalyzes mevalonic acid synthesis. HMGRs are involved in the biosynthesis of a broad array of terpenoid compounds, and distinct isoforms of HMGR may be critical in directing the… CONTINUE READING
