Enzymes of cinnamic acid metabolism in plants

Abstract:

The wide variety of phenolic compounds found in higher plants originate from cinnamic acid. Derivatives of this molecule are formed by two types of conversion: hydroxylation of the benzene ring, and activation of the side-chain. The first hydroxylation is para to the side-chain and gives rise to p-coumaric acid. The necessity of a carboxylic activation step prior to side-chain conversions which lead to complex phenolic compounds by reduction, esterification, andbeta;-oxi...
