Plant Metabolism and Biotechnology

Plant Metabolism and Biotechnology By Hiroshi Ashihara, Alan Crozier, Atsushi Komamine
2011 | 420 Pages | ISBN: 047074703X | PDF | 9 MB

Various plant metabolites are useful for human life, and the induction and reduction of these metabolites using modern biotechnical technique is of enormous potential important especially in the fields of agriculture and health. Plant Metabolism and Biotechnology describes the biosynthetic pathways of plant metabolites, their function in plants, and some applications for biotechnology.

Topics covered include:

biosynthesis and metabolism of starch and sugars
lipid biosynthesis
symbiotic nitrogen fixation
sulfur metabolism
nucleotide metabolism
purine alkaloid metabolism
nicotine biosynthesis
terpenoid biosynthesis
benzylisoquinoline alkaloid biosynthesis
monoterpenoid indole alkaloid biosynthesis
flavonoid biosynthesis
pigment biosynthesis: anthocyanins, betacyanins and carotenoids
metabolomics in biotechnology
Plant Metabolism and Biotechnology is an essential guide to this important field for researchers and students of biochemistry, plant biology, metabolic engineering, biotechnology, food science, agriculture, and medicine.
