SUMMING UP….. Understanding the plant enzymatic systems involved in metabolic processes provides a basis for developing novel, more effective, and environmentally benign herbicides and safeners . The most significant recent advances in our understanding of PC biosynthesis and function have come from molecular genetic studies using a variety of model systems.
