• Biochemical identification and analysis of ADT-like proteins from plants 

      De la Torre, Fernando; El-Azaz, Jorge; Ávila, Concepción; Canovas-Ramos, Francisco Miguel (2019-10-17)
      Phenylalanine (Phe) biosynthesis in plants is a fundamental process as Phe serves as a precursor of proteins but also of a massive array of essential phenylpropanoids for plant growth development defense or reproduction. ...
    • PpNAC1, a main regulator of phenylalanine biosynthesis in p. Pinaster 

      Pascual, Belen M; Llebrés, Maria Teresa; Cañas, Rafael A.; Canovas-Ramos, Francisco Miguel; Avila, C (2017-07-14)
      The metabolism of phenylalanine plays a central role in the channeling of carbon from photosynthesis to the biosynthesis of phenylpropanoids duringwood formation. This crucial pathway is finely regulated primarily at ...
    • Regulation versus deregulation: an evolutionary perspective on the biochemical control of amino acids biosynthesis in plants 

      El-Azaz, Jorge; De la Torre, Fernando; Urbano-Gámez, Alberto; Barcelona, Belen; Avila, Concepción; [et al.] (2019-07-23)
      Amino acids are essential compounds for all the living organisms. Along with their central role as constituents of proteins, in plants they also act as precursors of a myriad of compounds and meta- bolites with critical ...
    • Transcriptional regulation os phenylalaline biosynthesis and utilization 

      Pascual, Maria Belen; Cañas, Rafael A.; Craven-Ba<rtle, Blanca; Canovas-Ramos, Francisco Miguel; Avila, Concepción (2016-06-29)
      Conifer trees divert large quantities of carbon into the biosynthesis of phenylpropanoids, particularly to generate lignin, an important constituent of wood. Since phenylalanine is the precursor for phenylpropanoid ...
