Abstract

The present study established a system for comprehensive metabolic analysis of the cinnamate/monolignol and lignan pathways by the use of a stable-isotope-dilution method. The system was successfully applied to characterization of the pathways in Carthamus tinctorius cv. Round-leaved White maturing seeds in combination with administration of stable-isotope-labelled precursors. Experimental results obtained using this technique strongly suggested the intermediacy of ferulic acid in lignan biosynthesis in the plant.
