Production of plant-specific tyramine derivatives by dual expression of tyramine N-hydroxycinnamoyltransferase and 4-coumarate:coenzyme A ligase in Escherichia coli

Plant-specific bioactive compounds including feruloyltyramine (FT), 4-coumaroyltyramine (CT), and caffeoyltyramine (CaT) were simultaneously produced in Escherichia coli by heterologous expression of two biosynthetic genes encoding 4-coumarate:coenzyme A ligase and tyramine N-hydroxycinnamoyltransferase (THT) cloned from Arabidopsis thaliana and pepper… CONTINUE READING
