The prior decade has obvious significant advances within the cloning of genes encoding enzymes of plant secondary metabolism. This has been extra more desirable via the new venture at the sequencing of the Arabidopsis genome. those advancements give you the molecular genetic foundation to deal with the query of the Evolution of Metabolic Pathways . This quantity presents in-depth reports of our present wisdom at the evolutionary beginning of plant secondary metabolites and the enzymes serious about their biosynthesis. The chapters disguise 5 significant themes: 1. position of secondary metabolites in evolution; 2. Evolutionary origins of polyketides and terpenes; three. Roles of oxidative reactions within the evolution of secondary metabolism; four. Evolutionary beginning of substitution reactions: acylation, glycosylation and methylation; and five. Biochemistry and molecular biology of brassinosteroids.
