EC Number
gene sequence of limonoid UDP-glucosyltransferase in citrus fruits with different bitterness do not vary but the pattern of expression, delayed bitterness is related to delay in expression of the limonoid glucosyltransferase gene
whether the CitLGT-2 is present or not, is a useful molecular indicator for predetermining the levels of accumulation of non-bitter limonoid glucosides at the early- to mid-developmental stages of Satsuma mandarin and navel orange fruits. These molecular indicators will make it possible to characterize fruit traits at the seedling stage, resulting in the marker-assisted selection of hybrid progenies to predetermine whether they will accumulate non-bitter limonoid glucosides
food industry
Limonoid glucosyltransferase is an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of bitter limonoid into non-bitter limonoid glucoside while retaining the health benefit of limonoids in the juice. The immobilization of this enzyme in a column can solve the juice bitterness problem
pharmacological application of limonoid GTase gene
exploration of the possibility of using the enzyme in a bioreactor for debittering citrus juice
limonoid glucosides are important compounds not only for the processing industry but also for the consumer, bitterness due to limonoids is an important economic problem in commercial citrus juice production, limonoid aglycones are converted to nonbitter glucosides by the GTase, enhancement of the limonoid GTase activity through genetic engineering could reduce aglycone concentration, insertion of a gene encoding for GTase into commercial cultivars could create transgenic citrus varieties producing fruits potentially free of limonoid bitterness
