New insights into the evolutionary history of plant sorbitol dehydrogenase

Jia, Yong; Wong, Darren; Sweetman, Crystal; Bruning, John B.; Ford, Christopher M.

Description

BACKGROUND: Sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH, EC 1.1.1.14) is the key enzyme involved in sorbitol metabolism in higher plants. SDH genes in some Rosaceae species could be divided into two groups. L-idonate-5-dehydrogenase (LIDH, EC 1.1.1.264) is involved in tartaric acid (TA) synthesis in Vitis vinifera and is highly homologous to plant SDHs. Despite efforts to understand the biological functions of plant SDH, the evolutionary history of plant SDH genes and their phylogenetic relationship with the...[Show more]
