Taxol, a antitumor agent, is a terpenoid secondary product with ringed formula structure. The studies on the taxol biosynthase, especially on the key enzyme, will lay foundation for the production of taxol on large scales by means of gene project. Recent advances of the enzyme in the taxol biosynthesis are summarized.
