Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of Japanese Society of Plant Physiologists.Lignin poses a major challenge in the processing of plant biomass for agro-industrial applications. For bioengineering purposes, there is a pressing interest in identifying and characterizing the enzymes responsible for the biosynthesis of lignin. Hydroxycinnamoyl-CoA:shikimate hydroxycinnamoyl transferase is a key metabolic entry point for the synthesis of the most important lignin monom…Read more
