5 Efficacia biologica della vitE TocopherolsTocotrienols
6 Vit E biosynthesisTATThe combined annual consumption of tocopherols for human and animal applications was estimated at about 40,000 t in 2002, with only 10% coming from natural sources. Natural vitamin E originates almost exclusively from soybean oil, and is used predominantly for human applicationsTyrosine
8 γ-TMT in Synechocystis Il gene per la γ-TMT (VTE4) è stato identificato per primo in batteri (il mutante corrispondente è incapace di operare la conversione da γ a α)(A) Putative tocopherol biosynthetic operon from Synechocystis (15). SLR0089 encodes γ-TMT and SLR0090 encodes p-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase. (B) γ-TMT enzymatic reaction. γ -TMT adds a methyl group to ring carbon 5 of γ-tocopherol. (C) HPLC profiles of tocopherols in wild-type Synechocystis PCC6803 and the γ-TMT null mutant. Total lipid extracts were isolated from each line, and tocopherols were analyzed by HPLC.Shintani D, DellaPenna D. (1998)
9 Effetto sul rapporto α/γ Sovraesprimendo il gene di Arabidopsis si ottiene una conversione quasi completa di γ in α. aumenta il valore nutritivoArabidopsis seed contains ≈95% γ -tocopherol; seed-specific overexpression of VTE4 resulted in the near-complete conversion of γ-tocopherol to α-tocopherol (an 80-fold increase in α-tocopherol) and a ninefold increase in vitamin E activityShintani D, DellaPenna D. (1998)
10 Tocopherol composition and levels in leaves of 5-week-old wild-type and transgenics Tocopherol composition and levels in leaves of 5-week-old wild-type, 35S::γ-TMT, 35S::HPT1, and double 35S:: γ-TMT/ 35S::HPT1 overexpressers. Leaf tissue (approximately 70 mg) was extracted, and individual tocopherols were separated and quantified by normal phase HPLC. Each line is represented as an average ± SD from three plants. Total tocopherol levels of 35S::HPT1 and 35S::γ-TMT/35S::HPT1 plants were significantly higher than wild-type levels (P < 0.005). The excess γ-tocopherol in double transgenics was methylated to α-tocopherol.Collakova and DellaPenna (2003)
11 Tocopherol composition and levels in seed of wild-type and transgenics Il livello totale non cambia molto, ma cambia il rapporto tra i vari metabolitiCollakova and DellaPenna (2003)
12 Soybean oilSovraespressione di VTE3, VTE4 o entrambi in semi di soiaLa sovraespressioni dei diversi geni non cambia la quantità totale ma la proporzione tra le varie forme di tocoferoloVan Eenennaam AL, et al., (2003)

14 What is really limiting Tocopherol biosynthesis? “… the gene encoding Arabidopsis HPT, HPT1, was constitutively overexpressed in Arabidopsis. In leaves, HPT1 overexpression resulted in a 10-fold increase in HPT specific activity and a 4.4-fold increase in total tocopherol content relative to wild type. In seeds, HPT1 overexpression resulted in a 4-fold increase in HPT specific activity and a total seed tocopherol content that was 40% higher than wild type, primarily because of an increase in γ-tocopherol content.These results indicate that HPT activity is limiting in various Arabidopsis tissues…”Collakova & DellaPenna (2003)“Overexpression of VTE1 resulted in an increase in total tocopherol of at least 7-fold in leaves, and a dramatic shift from α-tocopherol to γ-tocopherol. Expression studies demonstrated that indeed VTE1 is a major limiting factor of tocopherol synthesis in leaves.”Kanwischer et al.. (2005)
15 Manipolazione del livello di VitE in foglie e semi Impact of engineering single and multiple tocochromanol biosynthetic enzymes on total and individual tocochromanol levels and on vitamin E activity in Arabidopsis leaves (a) and seed (b)leaves: 20 pmol / mg FW seeds: 800 pmol / mg seedDellaPenna D. (2005)Solo la sovraespressione di più geni comporta aumenti significativi nel flussoData were taken from:  for wild type (WT) and VTE4; from  for VTE2 and VTE2CVTE4; from  for VTE1; from  for barley HGGT; from  for TyrACHPPD and VTE2CTyrACHPPD. Because studies were from different laboratories in each case, the impact of transgenics was calculated relative to the wild-type control(s) from each study.
16 Effetto della sovra-espressione dei vari geni Cosa succede se sovraesprimo HPPD o se aumento il supply di HPP (idrossi fenilpiruvato)?
17 VitE & metabolic shortcuts La prefenato deidrogenasi di lievito permette la conversione di prefenato in idrossifenilpiruvato (HPP) e rappresenta quindi una scorciatoia metabolica.Il flusso a Fenilalanina è molto abbondante nelle piante (per la sintesi dei fenilpropanoidi e dei precursori della lignina) e quindi la sottrazione di una parte sotto forma di prefenato non crea complicazioni.Il lavoro sulla durrina suggerisce che il flusso a tirosina può variare di molto senza effetti negativiRippert et al., (2004)
18 Selezione di piante resistenti a DKN DKN è un inibitore della HPPDLa compresenza di HPPD e di PDH permette un maggior grado di resistenza al DKNRippert et al., (2004)

20 Sorgente inattesa per la coda di Fitolo The phenotype of the vte5-1 mutant is consistent with the hypothesis that chlorophyll degradation-derived phytol serves as an important intermediate in seed tocopherol synthesis and forces reevaluation of the role of geranylgeranyl diphosphate reductase in tocopherol biosynthesis.Valentin et al., (2006)

23 Profile of Tocopherol, Chlorophyll, and Oil Accumulation in Developing Brassica napus Seed Il tocoferolo si accumula in concomitanza con la degradazione della clorofilla (e quindi la produzione di fitolo che da essa deriva)Valentin, H. E., et al. Plant Cell 2006;18:
24 Metabolically engineered oilseed crops with enhanced seed tocopherol Manipolazioni su più geni permettono l’accumulo di tocoferolo e tocotrienoli in soia e Arabidopsis fino a livelli visibili ad occhio nudoSeed phenotype and HGA accumulation in transgenic Arabidopsis and soybean seed. Panels A and B show segregating Arabidopsis and soybean seed transformed with pMON69909, and pMON69943, respectively. These plasmids contained seed-specific expression constructs for Eh-TYRA, At-HPPD, and Syn-VTE2. Panels C and D show LC-MS chromatograms for HGA from Arabidopsis and soybean seed extracts harboring pMON69909, and pMON69943, respectively.Karunanandaa, B. et al. (2005)
25 Seed specific expression of At-HPPD, Eh-TYRA, At-VTE2, or Syn-VTE2 as single genes resulted in significant seed tocochromanol increases of 1.09-fold, 1.20-fold, 1.41-fold, and 1.36-fold in R2 seed populations, respectivelyKarunanandaa, B. et al. (2005)
26 VTE4, VTE3HPPD, TYRA, VTE2VTE4, VTE3HPPD, TYRA, VTE2When single genes were expressed in crops, only seed specific expression of Eh-TYRA in canola resulted in a significant increase of the average seed tocochromanol content of all events, with up to two-fold WT tocochromanol levels for the best performing event. However, when combinations of two or more tocochromanol genes were expressed, seed tocochromanol levels increased significantly in Arabidopsis, and canola for all gene combinationsCorrelation between α-tocopherol and total tocochromanol levels in F2 segregating soybean seed obtained through crossing homozygous soybean lines transformed with pMON69943, and pMON Plasmids pMON69943 and pMON67227 harbored the P7Sα‘-CTP2-At-HPPD-E9 3′, P7Sα‘-CTP1-Eh-TYRA-E9 3′, PArc−5-CTP1-Syn-VTE2-Arc 3′, and P7sα’-At-VTE4-E9 3′, P7sα’-At-VTE3-E9 3′ expression cassettes, respectivelyTotal vitamin E content in F2 seed combining the high total tocochromanol phenotype with the high a-tocopherol and high a-tocotrienol phenotype, was calculated to be up to 11-fold higher than in WT-soybean seed.Giocando sui geni e sulla loro espressione si può ottenere l’accumulo di quantità e proporzioni diverse dei vari composti. Con l’attivazione parallela, migliora l’omeostasi dei metaboliti e la germinabilità.Karunanandaa, B. et al. (2005)

37 Waller et al. (2010) reported that the expression “of three downstream pathway genes […] increased by up to 7.8-, 2.8-, and 1.7-fold, apparently in response to the build-up of specific folate pathway metabolites”. Thus the substantial accumulation of folate reported in some publications might be due to a partial parallel activation stimulated by feedforward mechanisms rather than high flux control coefficients of the enzymes targeted for manipulation.

50 Increase in GMPase activity was concomitant with increased ascorbate levels in all tissues measured (Table 2). Ascorbate content in leaves was increased up to 66% compared with 50 and 35% in green and red fruit, respectively. Most transgenic ALO lines displayed increased ascorbate levels (P<0.05) in leaf tissue, typically between 21 and 54% (Table 3). Levels in green fruit were increased up to 25% (P<0.1), while red fruit contained levels invariant from the wild type. In leaf material, increased MIOX activity was associated with up to 30% reduction in ascorbate content (Table 4). Conversely, transgenic green fruit with increased MIOX activity displayed up to 35% increased ascorbate levels (P<0.1).Cronje et al. (2012)
