Phenylpropanoid derivatives are a complex class of secondary metabolites that have many important roles in plants during normal growth and in responses to environmental stress. Phenylalanine ammonialyase (PAL) catalyzes the first step in the biosynthesis of phenylpropanoids, and is usually encoded by a multi-gene family. Genomic clones for three Arabidopsis thaliana PAL genes containing the entire protein-coding region and upstream and downstream sequences have been obtained and completely… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Tomato Phenylalanine Ammonia-Lyase Gene Family, Highly Redundant but Strongly Underutilized*
TLDR
Southern blot and dot blot analyses in tomato indicate a surprisingly large family of related sequences with ∼26 copies in the diploid genome, some easily distinguished by restriction enzyme digestion, suggesting aggressive competition between PAL gene duplication and copy inactivation during PAL gene evolution.
A diverse family of phenylalanine ammonia-lyase genes expressed in pine trees and cell cultures
TLDR
It is shown that in the gymnosperm, Pinus banksiana, phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) is encoded by a multigene family of at least eight to ten loci, and evidence suggesting that other pines have similar pal gene family structures is discussed.
The PAL2 promoter activities in relation to structural development and adaptation in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
It is shown that the PAL2 promoter activities are associated with the structural development of a plant and its organs and under certain stress conditions the activity may be induced in favour of certain organs.
The phenylalanine ammonia lyase (PAL) gene family shows a gymnosperm-specific lineage
TLDR
Gymnosperms have a more phylogenetically diverse set of PAL genes than angiosperms, and these genes form a single clade in the gene PAL tree, suggesting they are derived from a single gene in an ancestral angiosperm genome.
Characterization and differential expression analysis of artichoke phenylalanine ammonia-lyase-coding sequences.
TLDR
These analyses and Southern blots suggested that, in artichoke, phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) is encoded by a small gene family, and the possible involvement of the single pal genes in different physiological processes is discussed.
Molecular Phenotyping of the pal1 and pal2 Mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana Reveals Far-Reaching Consequences on Phenylpropanoid, Amino Acid, and Carbohydrate Metabolism
TLDR
Together, from the molecular phenotype, common and specific functions of PAL1 and PAL2 are delineated, and PAL1 is qualified as being more important for the generation of phenylpropanoids.
Cloning and characterisation of a phenylalanine ammonia-lyase gene from Rhus chinensis
TLDR
This was the first full-length PAL gene cloned and characterized from the family Anacardiaceae so far and the results showed that the optimal temperature and pH for RcPAL activity were 45 °C and 9.0, and the Km and Kcat values were 7.90 mM and 52.31 s−1, respectively.
Molecular cloning, expression and characterization of a phenylalanine ammonia-lyase gene (SmPAL1) from Salvia miltiorrhiza
TLDR
To further understand the role SmPAL1 plays in the synthesis of active pharmaceutical compounds in S. miltiorrhiza at molecular level, the cloned protein exhibited high PAL activity and could catalyze the conversion of l-Phe to trans-cinnamic acid.
Molecular and analysis of a phenylalanine ammonia-lyase gene (LrPAL2) from Lycoris radiata
TLDR
Results suggested that LrPAL2 might play distinct roles in different branches of the phenylpropanoid pathway.

Functional properties of a phenylalanine ammonia-lyase promoter from Arabidopsis.
TLDR
Results showed that transcripts encoded by the endogenous PAL genes and GUS transcripts from the PAL1-GUS gene fusion were induced by wounding, HgCl2-stress, and light, and that the regulatory properties of 5' deleted promoters showed that the proximal region of the promoter to -290 was sufficient to establish the full tissue-specific pattern of expression.

TLDR
Genomic analysis indicates that PAL sequences of Glycine max exist as a small gene family consisting of only two to three members, with a coding region of 2142 basepairs divided among two exons.
Transcription of two members of a gene family encoding phenylalanine ammonia-lyase leads to remarkably different cell specificities and induction patterns.
TLDR
The consistency of these data with previous mRNA analysis in bean suggests that the differential expression of these two PAL genes is, at least in part, a function of their promoter activities.
Structure and some characterization of the gene for phenylalanine ammonia-lyase from rice plants.
TLDR
Southern blot analysis showed that the PAL gene of rice plants exists as a small multi-gene family and the genomic clone isolated in this study was shown to be responsive by light, indicating that this genomic sequence functions as a gene for phenylalanine ammonia-lyase in rice plants in vivo.
Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase gene organization and structure
TLDR
Southern blot hybridization of genomic DNA fragments revealed three divergent classes of PAL genes in the bean genome, and polymorphic forms were observed within each class.
Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.). Genomic complexity, structural comparison of two selected genes and modes of expression.
TLDR
Extensive structural similarities were observed both between the TATA-proximal portions of the PAL-1 and PAL-2 promoters, particularly in the areas containing putative cis-acting elements, and among all presently known PAL proteins from various higher and lower plants.
Truncated phenylalanine ammonia-lyase expression in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum).
cis-element combinations determine phenylalanine ammonia-lyase gene tissue-specific expression patterns.
TLDR
It is concluded that the PAL2 promoter has a modular organization and that tissue-specific expression in the vascular system involves a negative combinatorial interaction, modulation of which may provide a flexible mechanism for modification of tissue specificity.
A phenylalanine ammonia‐lyase gene from parsley: structure, regulation and identification of elicitor and light responsive cis‐acting elements.
TLDR
The findings suggest a general role of these putative cis‐acting elements in the responses of plants to such stresses, as well as the first primary structure of a plant PAL gene (parsley PAL‐1) and the deduced amino acid sequence of the enzyme.
