Regulation of Secondary Product and Plant Hormone Metabolism contains the proceedings of the 12th Meeting of the Federation of European Biochemical Societies held in Dresden, Germany in 1978. The meeting provided a forum for discussing progress in understanding the regulation of the metabolism of secondary products and plant hormones. It shows that the processes regulating secondary metabolism are similar in lower and higher plants, and that the molecular basis of cell differentiation and specialization is uniform in all groups of living organisms. Comprised of 22 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the interrelationships between secondary products and hormones in plants, followed by a detailed account of the effects of phenolic compounds on auxin biosynthesis and vice versa. The reader is then introduced to non-ribosomal biosynthesis of biologically active peptides; channelling of intermediates during the biosynthesis of cyanogenic glycosides; and intracellular distribution of flavonoids in glandular cells. Subsequent chapters explore the regulation of gene expression in secondary biosynthesis; inhibition of phenylalanine ammonia-lyase by cinnamic acid derivatives; novel inhibitors of phenylpropanoid metabolism in higher plants; and stage-specific phenylpropanoid metabolism during pollen development. This book will be of interest to biochemists and geneticists.
