Metabolic Engineering of Aliphatic Glucosinolates in Hairy Root Cultures of Arabidopsis thaliana

Two cytochrome P450 proteins, CYP79F1 and CYP79F2, are involved in the biosynthesis of aliphatic glucosinolates (GSs) in brassicaceous species. In order to increase aliphatic GS levels in Arabidopsis thaliana hairy root cultures (HRCs) with the aim of biomanufacturing GSs, CYP79F1 and CYP79F2 from either Arabidopsis thaliana or Brassica rapa were first… CONTINUE READING
