Functional expression and biochemical characterization of plant P450 monooxygenases

Our aim is to characterize selected plant P450s which are involved in the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites. For this approach the P450s will be expressed in recombinant microbial hosts to produce them in sufficient amounts and to investigate their substrate specificities and selectivities in vitro. Furthermore the activities towards selected substrates will be recapitulated in vivo with recombinant yeast.
