Flavonoid Metabolism Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Flavonoid Metabolism
by Helen A. Stafford

Flavonoid Metabolism discusses the biosynthesis and catabolism of flavonoids and their regulation in plants. Emphasis is placed on key regulatory enzymic steps in the two pathways leading to the flavonoid basic units as well as the overall pathway within the flavonoid group.

Flavonoid Metabolism focuses on the known cell-free enzymology at the C15 level, as well as isotopic tracer studies involving the still unknown enzymic steps.

Flavonoid Metabolism covers:

  • The intra- and extra-cellular and tissue localization of the biosynthetic and presumed catabolic enzymes
  • Transport of intermediates or final products
  • The interaction or competition between primary and secondary metabolism
  • The role of genetics and molecular biology
  • Technological advances such as isotopes, paper and thin layer chromatography and tissue culture
  • and more!
