• The arogenate dehydratase ADT2 is essential for seed development in Arabidopsis 

      El-Azaz Ciudad, Jorge; Canovas-Ramos, Francisco Miguel; Ávila, Concepción; De la Torre Fazio, Fernando (2018-07-25)
      Phenylalanine (Phe) biosynthesis in plants is a key process, as Phe serves as precursor of proteins and phenylpropanoids. The prephenate pathway connects chorismate, final product of the shikimate pathway, with the ...
    • Biosynthesis of Phenylalanine in Plants 

      El Azaz Ciudad, Jorge (UMA Editorial, 2017-07-05)
      El aminoácido fenilalanina (Phe) desempeña en las plantas terrestres una función esencial, al actuar como precursor tanto de las proteínas como de la síntesis de fenilpropanoides, una amplia familia de metabolitos secundarios ...
    • Maritime pine PpMYB8 directly co-regulates secondary cell wall architecture and the associated Phe-biosynthesis pathway 

      De la Torre Fazio, Fernando; El-Azaz Ciudad, Jorge; Pascual, Mª Belén; Trontin, Jean-Francois; Debille, Sandrine; [et al.] (2018-07-25)
      Plants rely on the biosynthesis of L-Phenylalanine as building block for the synthesis of proteins but also as precursor for a tremendous range of plant-derived compounds essential for its grown, development and defense. ...
    • Metabolic channeling of phe for lignin biosynthesis in maritime pine 

      De la Torre, Fernando; El-Azaz Ciudad, Jorge; Alvarez-Mena, A; Pascual, MB; Trontin, J-F; [et al.] (2017-07-14)
      Phenylalanine (Phe) is the main precursor of phenylpropanoids biosynthesis in plants. This vast family of Phe-derived compounds can represent more than 30% of captured photosynthetic carbon, playing essential roles in ...
    • Multidisciplinary teaching of Biotechnology and Omics sciences 

      Cañas, Rafael A.; De la Torre, Fernando; Pascual, Belen M; El-Azaz Ciudad, Jorge; Cantón, Francisco R.; [et al.] (2017-10-27)
      In the last years, there was a great boom in the Omics fields that have developed as multidisciplinary sciences. They use laboratory techniques related to Biology and Chemistry but also Bioinformatics tools. However, the ...
