About this book

Covers the basic knowledge of the regulation of biosynthesis of various amino acids in plants and the application of this knowledge to the discovery of novel inhibitors of amino acid biosynthesis and for enhancing the nutritional value of plant products. Provides an exhaustive list of pathway inhibitors.


Nitrogen metabolism in higher plants; the enzymes of glutamine, glutamate, asparagine and aspartate metabolism; seine and glycine metabolism in higher plants; the shikmate pathway; the biosynthesis of tryptophan, tyrosine and phenyalanine fromchorismate; lysine, threonine and methionine biosynthesis; biosynthesis of valine, leucine, and isoleucine; regulation of proline and arginine biosynthesis in plants; biosynthesis of cysteine; histine biosynthesis; amino acid transport; role of aminoacides in abiotic satress resistance; inhibitors of tryptophan, phenylalanine and tyrosine biosynthesis as herbicides; inhibotors of histidine biosynthesis; inhibitors of glutamine biosynthesis; herbicide-resistant crops to inhibitors of amino acidbiosynthesis; enhancing the content of the essential amnio acids lysine and thereonine in plants; methionine enhancement in plants; glucosinolates; biosynthesis of cyanogenic glycosides, cyanolipids, and related compounds.
