Cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase is a key enzyme in plant secondary metabolism, especially lignin synthesis, and is closely related to plant growth and resist to pathogen bacteria invasion. Lignin is one of the components and able to make up the cell walls of plants. It can strengthen cell wall and bind fibers in plant tissue. Its composition and properties are complex and have strong activity.
Substances of higher relative molecular weight, which are difficult to hydrolyze under the action of acids, mainly exist in the cells of lignified plants and strengthen plant tissues. In addition, lignin also has anti-tumor, liver-protecting and antioxidant effects, antiviral effects, smooth muscle spasmolysis, CAMP phosphodiesterase inhibitory activity, immune enhancement, and promotion of protein and glycogen synthesis.
As the key enzyme of lignin synthesis, rt-pcr and RACE method are currently used to isolate one gene of CAD family from bamboo shoots in filial piety, and CAD is produced by cloning technology. However, the cost is quite high, so that the price of downstream products also rise, which brings great difficulties to the application of products. This research result is a major breakthrough to solve the synthesis problem of cinnamol dehydrogenase, and greatly reduces the manufacturing cost of CAD. This exciting news comes from China Cinnamic alcohol company. According to reports, the CAD synthesized by this technology has the same performance as the CAD cloned by biotechnology, which brings unprecedented profit margin to the synthesis of downstream products such as lignin.
Of course, in this process, the effect of cinnamyl alcohol is undoubted, it is the basis of synthetic CAD, the quality of cinnamyl alcohol directly affects the application of synthetic quality of CAD and its performance.
