Flavonoids: Their Structure, Biosynthesis and Role in the Rhizosphere, Including Allelopathy

Weston , Leslie A; Mathesius, Ulrike

Description

Flavonoids are biologically active low molecular weight secondary metabolites that are produced by plants, with over 10,000 structural variants now reported. Due to their physical and biochemical properties, they interact with many diverse targets in subcellular locations to elicit various activities in microbes, plants, and animals. In plants, flavonoids play important roles in transport of auxin, root and shoot development, pollination, modulation of reactive oxygen species, and signalling of...[Show more]
