Abstract


O ácido ascórbico não é sintetizado pelo organismo humano, sendo, portanto, indispensável a dieta. É considerada como uma substância de grande importância para a nutrição humana e está amplamente distribuída no reino vegetal, sendo que algumas frutas são consideradas fontes excepcionais. Esse metabólito possui um importante papel na fisiologia das plantas em relação a diferentes tipos de processos. A principal via biossintética nas plantas é a via Wheeler/Smirnoff que possui algumas enzimas possuidoras de isoformas, não havendo referências ante as diferenças de suas expressões gênicas. Assim, o conhecimento das sequências gênicas e proteicas favorece o início de um estudo mais aprofundado dessa via.
