Glyphosate [N-(phosphonomethyl)glycine] is a non-selective, broad spectrum, systemic, post-emergence herbicide that has been used extensively throughout the world over the past three decades. It inhibits the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids (phenylalanine, tryptophan, and tyrosine), which leads to several metabolic disturbances, including the inhibition of protein and secondary product biosynthesis (Franz et al., 1997) and the deregulation of the shikimate pathway, leading to general metabolic disruption (Duke et al., 2003).
