Özet

Context: Phenylketonuria (PKU) is the most common hereditary defect of phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) enzyme achieving the hydroxylation of phenylalanine (Phe). Phenylalanine ammonia lyase (PAL) converts Phe to a harmless metabolite, trans-cinnamic acid (TCA) in plants and PAL enzyme activity is fairly high in plants rich in flavonoids.
