Abstract

Described is a nucleic acid sequence isolated from Persicaria hydropiper and encoding a drimenol oxidase protein, expression vectors comprising such nucleic acid sequence, chimeric genes comprising such nucleic acid sequence, host cells or host organisms altered to harbour the drimenol oxidase nucleic acid sequence, and the drimenol oxidase protein itself. Methods for producing cinnamolide and/or drimendiol and/or enhanced levels of cinnamolide and/or drimendiol, in a cell or organism harbouring such nucleic acid sequence are provided. Transgenic organisms comprising the nucleic acid sequence or a chimeric gene of the invention are also provided. The present invention especially relates to transgenic plants with enhanced resistance to insects and enhanced insect antifeedant properties.
