Biosynthesis of acylphloroglucinols: novel phenolics from strawberry fruit

Schwab Wilfried Polyphenols 2018 Prof. Wilfried Schwab from Technical University of Munich, Freising, Germany will talk about "Biosynthesis of acylphloroglucinols: novel phenolics from strawberry fruit" during the 12th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications: Bonn Polyphenols 2018 which will be held at the University of Bonn, Germany in September 25-28, 2018.

Summary of talk: "Polyphenolic compounds have health-promoting properties and are a major group of secondary metabolites in fruit crops. Through reverse genetic analysis of the functions of ripening-related genes in strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa) we discovered four acylphloroglucinol (APG)-glucosides as native Fragaria spp. fruit metabolites whose levels were differently regulated in the transgenic fruits. The biosynthesis of the APG aglycones was investigated by examination of the enzymatic properties of three recombinant Fragaria vesca chalcone synthase proteins."
