Dudareva and Maeda wanted to see what would happen if they forced the shikimate pathway to function, so they gave the petunias shikimic acid.
Maeda said the plant created some sort of feedback mechanism that slowed down the entry point of the shikimate pathway.
It is produced when sugars enter a plant's shikimate pathway, which creates a link between the processing of sugars and the generation of aromatic compounds.
Dudareva and Maeda will next try to determine how the plant creates feedback to the shikimate pathway.
