Tobacco plants metabolically engineered to produce strychnine [Full subscriber]

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology have unravelled the complete biosynthetic pathway for forming strychnine in poison nut. They identified all genes involved in the biosynthesis of strychnine and other metabolites and expressed them in the tobacco plant via the metabolic engineering toolbox.…
