The biosynthetic pathway to 4-hydroxybenzoate (4HB), a precursor of the naphthoquinone pigment shikonin, was modified in Lithospermum erythrorhizon hairy root cultures by introduction of the bacterial gene ubiC. This gene of Escherichia coli encodes chorismate pyruvate-lyase (CPL), an enzyme that converts chorismate into 4HB and is not normally present in plants. The ubiC gene was fused to the sequence for a chloroplast transit peptide and placed under control of a constitutive plant promoter. This construct was introduced into L. erythrorhizon by Agrobacterium rhizogenes-mediated transformation.
