General Information

General Information Comment Organism
physiological function both transient and stable overexpression of geranyl(geranyl) diphosphate synthase G(G)PPS and coexpression of G(G)PPS plus geraniol synthase GES significantly enhances the accumulation of secologanin, which in turn elevates the levels of monomeric monoterpene indole alkaloids. Transgenic plants exhibit increased levels of root alkaloid ajmalicine. The dimeric alkaloid vinblastine is enhanced only in G(G)PPS but not in G(G)PPS plus GES transgenic lines Catharanthus roseus
