Functional genomics of metabolite secretion in glandular trichomes

2010/11-2013/14 • $63,540 • PI
Trichomes are epidermal hairs that function to protect plants against herbivores, pathogens and abiotic damage. Glandular trichomes are specialized for the biosynthesis and secretion of natural products. In addition to their importance in plant defense, many of the metabolites produced in...

GENES AND PROTEINS FOR AROMATIC POLYKETIDE SYNTHESIS

Nucleic acid molecules encoding polypeptides having polyketide synthase activity have been identified and characterized. Expression or over-expression of the nucleic acids alters levels of cannabinoid compounds in organisms. The polypeptides may be used in vivo or in vitro to produce cannabinoid compounds.
