Application Notes

Cinnamic acid is a common plant metabolite, biosynthetically formed by the action of phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) on phenylalanine. Cinnamic acid is a member of the phenylpropanoid class of lignin biosynthetic precursors. Cinnamic acid is produced by many microorganisms but is also readily produced by fermentation on media containing plant extracts. The biochemical and pharmacological activity of cinnamic acid has > 13,000 entries in SciFinder and is well reviewed by Guzman (2014) and Sharma (2011). Cinnamic acid a useful standard for analytical and bioassay dereplication.
