  12. 12. Amino Acid Metabolism and Implications for Wine Industry UV (and PAR) NITROGEN (Uptake and assimilation) AMINO ACIDS Methoxypyrazines: amino acids as precursors to flavour and aroma compounds Phenolics: amino acids as precursors – implicated in ageing and bitterness in white wine Amino acid composition and implications for fermentation bouquet and yeast assimilable nitrogen Glutathione: implicated in the prevention of browning process Valine, isoleucine, leucine Phenylalanine, tyrosine, tryptophan All amino acids except proline Cysteine, glutamate, glycine

  14. 14. Light regulation of nitrogen metabolism • Light regulates the conversion of glutamate into glutamine in the chloroplast • This involves the GOGAT pathway and requires ATP • This assimilation of nitrogen then provides amino acids/amines to the fruit Glutamate Glutamine

  28. 28. Methoxypyrazines • Little is known about their biosynthesis – Thought to derive from amino acid biosynthesis • Accumulate up until veraison • Degrade after veraison and with exposure of grape bunches to light • At low concentrations (ng.L-1 ) contribute to green/green- pepper aromas

  31. 31. Effects of UV and Leaf Removal on Wine Quality • Methoxypyrazine levels low in juice at harvest, but high early in grape development: control of gene expression from amino acid precursors • Amino acid composition different in juice in response to light environment • Regulation of proline biosynthesis important for fermentation • Flavonoids accumulate with UV exposure: role of transcription factors • Lipoxygenase pathway: complex gene family and expression pattern
