The enzymatic synthesis of MG at least includes four potential pathways in plants: (1) glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate (G3P) pathway: Triosephosphate (TP) isomerase (TPI) hydrolyzes G3P or DHAP to yield MG and phosphate (Pi), this is the major source of MG formation; (2) acetol pathway: acetone monooxygenase catalyzes acetone (a metabolite of fatty acids) to acetol, the latter is converted to MG by acetol monooxygenase (AMO); (3) aminoacetone pathway: in this pathway, semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO) is able to convert aminoacetone (a metabolite of protein) into MG; (4) dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) pathway: MG can be produced from DHAP via MG synthase (MGS) (Kaur et al.
