Molecular cloning and functional characterization of a monoterpene synthase isolated from the aromatic wild shrub Thymus albicans

Filipe A, Cardoso JCR, Miguel G, Anjos L, Trindade H, Figueiredo AC, Barroso J, Power DM, Marques NT Journal of Plant Physiology, 2017 ABSTRACT: The essential oil of Thymus albicans Hoffmanns. & Link, a native shrub from the Iberian Peninsula, is mainly composed of monoterpenes. In this study, a 1,8-cineole synthase was isolated from the 1,8-cineole chemotype. A partial sequence that lacked the complete plastid… Read more »
