Molecular evolution of plant P5CS gene involved in proline biosynthesis

The P5CS ({Delta} 1-Pyrroline–5-Carboxylate Synthetase) gene encodes for a bifunctional enzyme that catalyzes the rate limiting reaction in proline biosynthesis in living organisms. A wide range of multifunctional roles of proline have now been shown in stress defense. The proline biosynthetic genes, especially, P5CS is commonly used in metabolic… CONTINUE READING
