Progress in plant metabolic engineering.


P lants have been estimated to collectively synthesize more than 30,000 different terpenoids, of which many have useful applications in the manufacture of foods, industrial compounds, and pharmaceuticals. Terpenoids are synthesized from the condensation, in a head to tail fashion, of 5-carbon isoprene (or hemiterpene) units. Major terpenoid classes include… (More)
