BackgroundDifferent isotopically-labelled cinnamic acids were fed to cubed cassava roots and it was observed that the deuterium (or proton) on C-2 was exchanged. The biosynthetic end-products are an indication of the metabolic processes taking place in the cassava roots.
Keywords: biochemical pathways; cassava; food security; hydroxycoumarins;.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
