Abstract

Plant metabolic engineering is lagging behind other kinds of genetic manipulation of plants. Creating metabolic pathways or improving their yields requires a better understanding of plant metabolism and of its regulation. Metabolic Control Analysis provides an interpretation of experimental failures and a guide for manipulators. It suggests also that there might be intrinsic limits to raising yields in already abundant products. At present, these limits can be dealt with more effectively by plant breeding.
