Thanksgiving


It seems like time goes by faster and faster the more of it we can look back on as we age. It is with that thought that I can hardly believe Thanksgiving has already past us by this year. Before this subject is completely buried in the oncoming holiday rush, I wanted to revisit a classic paper on gibberellin biosynthesis using pumpkin as an experimental system.

Defining metabolite: ent kaurene
Defining enzymes: copalyl diphosphate synthase and ent kaurene synthase
Function: First steps in gibberellin biosynthesis, essential plant growth hormones
