Production of Complex Flavonoids
Unmet Need: Production of lipophilic methoxylated flavonoidsNumerous methoxylated flavonoids exhibit pronounced bioactivities. Their biotechnological production and diversification are therefore of interest to pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries. Efforts to engineer flavonoid mechanisms have been conducted earlier but there has not been much...
