General Information

General Information Comment Organism
physiological function expression of Ocimum basilicum geranyl diposphate synthase in Vitis vinifera, Arabidopsis thaliana, and Nicotiana benthamiana leads to synthesis of geraniol as the main product detected in the leaves, with different minor products citronellol and nerol in Vitis vinifera, linalool and nerol in Nicotiana benthamiana. Engineered Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain A9D expressing Ocimum basilicum geranyl diposphate produces significant quantities of monoterpenes, including 90% geraniol, 5% linalool, 5% citronellol and traces of nerol Ocimum basilicum
