摘 要:

采用 3' 和 5' RACE 技术从野葛中克隆到葡糖基转移酶基因 PlUGT3 (GenBank 登录号 EU889121) cDNA 序列, 长度为1678 bp, 包含完整的开放阅读框(ORF)。ORF 全长 1 428 bp, 编码 475 个氨基酸。此氨基酸序列具有葡糖基转移酶糖基受 体结合特征区域 PSPG box, 与几种高等植物氨基酸序列的同源性大于 40%。半定量 RT-PCR 表明, PlUGT3 在野葛根和叶 中表达, 两者表达量没有明显差别。

Abstract:

A glucosyltransferase gene, named PlUGT3 (GenBank accession No. EU889121) was cloned from Pueraria lobata by RT-PCR and RACE methods. The cDNA contained 1 678 bp with an open reading frame (ORF) of 1 428 bp and encoded a putative protein of 457 amino acids. The deduced amino acid sequence showed more than 40% similarity to homologues from other plants such as Rhodiola sachalinensis and Arabidopsis thaliana, and to highly conserved functional domain PSPG box of the gene family. Semiquantitive RT-PCR analysis indicated that PlUGT3 expression levels were not significant different in roots and leaves.

Key words: Pueraria lobata; glucosyltransferases; RACE; bioinformatic analysis
