Recent Advances in Phytochemisty, Volume 8: Metabolism and Regulation of Secondary Plant Products covers papers from the 13th annual meeting of the Phytochemical Society of North America held on August 8-10, 1973, at the Asilomar State Park and Conference Center in Pacific Grove, California. The book discusses phenylalanine ammonia-lyase and phenolic metabolism; enzymology and regulation of flavonoid and lignin biosynthesis in plants and plant cell suspension cultures; and possible multienzyme complexes regulating the formation of C6-C3 phelonic compounds and lignins in higher plants. The text also describes photoregulation of phenylpropanoid and styrylpyrone biosynthesis in Polyporis hispidus; the nonprotein amino acids from plants; and the role of proteinase inhibitors in natural plant protection. The regulatory control mechanisms in alkaloid biosynthesis; the biochemistry of myoinositol in plants; and unusual fatty acids in plants are also considered. Phytochemists and people involved in the study of pomology will find the book useful.
