Innovation of Cinnamyl Alcohol Dehydrogenase Technology

Sep. 23, 2020

Cinnamyl Alcohol Dehydrogenase, as a key enzyme for plant secondary metabolism, especially lignin synthesis, is closely related to plant growth and development and resistance to pathogen invasion. Lignin is one of the components that make up plant cell walls and has the function of connecting cells. In plant tissues, it has the effect of strengthening cell walls and bonding fibers. Its composition and properties are more complicated, and it has strong activity.

Substances with relatively high molecular weight, which are difficult to hydrolyze under the action of acid, mainly exist in the cells of lignified plants and strengthen plant tissues. In addition, lignin also has anti-tumor effects, hepatoprotective and antioxidant effects, antiviral effects, smooth muscle antispasmodic effects, cAMP phosphodiesterase inhibitory activity, immune enhancement, and promotion of protein and glycogen synthesis.

The most important enzyme for lignin synthesis, currently using RT-PCR and RACE methods to isolate a gene of the CAD gene family from filial bamboo shoots, using cloning technology to produce CAD, but the cost is quite high, so that the price of downstream products has also risen. , Has brought great difficulties to the application of the product.

However, the latest research shows that using dehydrogenase to catalyze the reduction of Cinnamyl Alcohol and its derivatives in NADPH, this method can effectively synthesize CAD. This research result is a major breakthrough in solving the synthesis problem of cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase, and greatly reduces the manufacturing cost of CAD. This exciting news comes from Hubei Yuancheng Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. According to reports, the performance of CAD synthesized using this technology is exactly the same as that of CAD cloned using biotechnology, bringing unprecedented profit margins to the synthesis of downstream products such as lignin.

Of course, in this process, the role of cinnamyl alcohol is undoubtedly, it is the basis for the synthesis of CAD, the quality of cinnamyl alcohol directly affects the synthesis quality of CAD and its performance application.
