• 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 ...
    • 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 ...
