Scientists Update on Vitamin B Pathway in PlantsOctober 3, 2012
The synthesis and salvage pathways for the seven plant B vitamins have already been identified by the scientists. However, some enzymes and many transporters, along with subcellular locations of various reactions leading to vitamin B synthesis in plants are still unknown.
With these, scientists from the University of Florida conducted an extensive review to capture current knowledge of B vitamin pathways in plants. The synthesis pathways, key salvage routes, and their subcellular compartmentation were thoroughly analyzed, while pathway diagrams for Arabidopsis and maize were publicly released through the SEED database. The review and the encoded pathways specifically identified enigmatic or missing reactions, enzymes, and transporters for plant's Vitamin B synthesis.
