Abstract The Arabidopsis GA3 cDNA was expressed in yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and the ability of the transformed yeast cells to metabolize ent-kaurene was tested. We show by full-scan gas chromatography-mass spectrometry that the transformed cells produce ent-kaurenoic acid, and demonstrate that the single enzyme GA3 (ent-kaurene oxidase) catalyzes the three steps of gibberellin biosynthesis from ent-kaurene to ent-kaurenoic acid.
