Three chalcone isomerase isozymes in Glycyrrhiza echinata (Fabaceae) were separated by chromatofocusing and partially purified to examine their substrate specificities. Two isozymes, one of which was elicitor-inducible, acted on both 6′-hydroxychalcone and 6′-deoxychalcone and presumably are involved in the legume-specific 5-deoxyflavonoid pathway, while another acted on only 6′-hydroxychalcone.

Keywords: Key words: Chalcone isomerase — 5-Deoxyflavonoids — Leguminous plants — Glycyrrhiza echinata.; Abbreviations: CHI, chalcone isomerase; DCHI, 6′-deoxychalcone isomerase; HCHI, 6′-hydroxychalcone isomerase.
