The gene for a bacterial enoyl-CoA hydratase (crotonase) homolog (HCHL) previously shown to convert 4-coumaroyl-CoA, caffeoyl-CoA, and feruloyl-CoA to the corresponding hydroxybenzaldehydes in vitro provided an opportunity to subvert the plant phenylpropanoid pathway and channel carbon flux through 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde and the important flavor compound 4-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzaldehyde (vanillin). Expression of the Pseudomonas fluorescens AN103 HCHL gene in two generations of tobacco plants… CONTINUE READING
