Reduced levels of cadinane sesquiterpenoids in cotton plants expressing antisense (+)-delta-cadinene synthase.

Abstract

Cotton plants were transformed with an antisense construct of cdn1-Cl, a member of a complex gene family of delta-(+)cadinene (CDN) synthase. This synthase catalyzes the cyclization of (E,E)-farnesyl diphosphate to form CDN, and in cotton, it occupies the committed step in the biosynthesis of cadinane sesquiterpenoids and heliocides (sesterterpenoids… (More)
