The biosynthesis and regulation of biosynthesis of Concord grape fruit esters, including 'foxy' methylanthranilate.

Abstract

The biosynthesis of methyl anthranilate, the volatile compound responsible for the distinctive 'foxy' aroma and flavor of the Washington Concord grape (Vitis labrusca), involves an alcohol acyltransferase that catalyzes the formation of methyl anthranilate from anthraniloyl-coenzyme A (CoA) and methanol. Although methanol is a poor substrate in comparison… (More)
