Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase and cinnamate 4-hydroxylase are important enzymes in allocating significant amounts of carbon from phenylalanine into the biosynthesis of several important secondary metabolites. Tea is an important crop of commerce known for its beverage and medicinally important flavonoid compounds, mainly catechins. As metabolic flux for the operation of the flavonoid pathway is maintained through the activities of PAL and C4H, thus, catechins biosynthesis in tea is critically… CONTINUE READING
