Aliphatic glucosinolates are a major class of defensive secondary metabolites in plants that are mostly derived from methionine. Occurring in different chain lengths, they show a structural diversity arising from the variable number of chain elongation cycles taking place during their biosynthesis. The key enzymes in determining glucosinolate chain length are the methylthioalkylmalate (MAM) synthases, MAM1 and MAM3, with MAM3 showing a broader substrate specificity than MAM1. A comparison of… CONTINUE READING
