Update on Biosynthesis of Proanthocyanidins The Mysteries of Proanthocyanidin Transport and Polymerization

Abstract

Flavonoids, including proanthocyanidins (PAs; also called condensed tannins), play a multitude of roles in plants (Winkel-Shirley, 2001). The presence of certain types of flavonoids in crops is associated with desirable and important agronomic traits; therefore, metabolic engineering of flavonoid biosynthesis has attracted considerable interest (Dixon, 2005… (More)
