Secondary plant metabolites undergo several modification reactions, including glycosylation. Glycosylation, which is mediated by UDP-glycosyltransferase (UGT), plays a role in the storage of secondary metabolites and in defending plants against stress. In this study, we cloned one of the glycosyltransferases from rice, RUGT-5 resulting in 40–42% sequence… CONTINUE READING
