Abstract

This review looks back on how the terpenoid indole alkaloid pathway and the regulatory factors in Catharanthus roseus were identified and characterized, and how metabolic engineering, including genetic engineering and metabolic profiling, was conducted based on the gained knowledge. In addition, further examination of the terpenoid indole alkaloid pathway is proposed.
