Molecular cloning and expression of Arabidopsis fatty acid hydroperoxide lyase.

Abstract

Fatty acid hydroperoxide lyase (HPOL), an enzyme of the octadecanoid pathway that forms carbon-6 aldehydes such as n-hexanal or (Z)-3-hexenal, was cloned from Arabidopsis thaliana as a full-length cDNA. The HPOL activity obtained by expressing the cDNA in Escherichia coli formed n-hexanal from linoleic acid 13-hydroperoxide, whereas linoleic acid 9… (More)
