Enzymes of flavonoid biosynthesis as a reason for the polyvariant nature of their accumulation


Ivanov Vyacheslav* and Shcherbakov Arkadiy

Flavonoid biosynthesis is characterized by extremely high flexibility; and it occurs in plants with different adaptive strategies in different habitats. The article proves that the flexibility of flavonoid biosynthesis has a fundamental nature and is the result of two circumstances: the special organization of the pathways of flavonoid metabolism and the relatively low specificity of the main enzymes of biosynthesis.
