Abstract

Recent achievements have been made in the metabolic engineering of plant secondary metabolism. Various pathways have been altered using genes encoding biosynthetic enzymes or genes encoding regulatory proteins. In addition, antisense genes have been used to block competitive pathways, thereby increasing the flux towards the desired secondary metabolites.
