Molecular cloning and characterization of the Strictosidine synthase Gene from Rauwolfia verticillata
The strictosidine synthase (STR, EC 22.214.171.124) catalyzes the condensation of tryptamine and secologanin to form strictosidine, which is the universal precursor for a wide range of pharmaceutical terpenoid indole alkaloids (TIAs). The full-length cDNA encoding STR was cloned and characterized from Rauwolfia verticillata a Chinese native plant producing TIAs, such as reserpine and ajmalicine. The new cDNA was designed as RvSTR and submitted to GenBank to get an accession number DQ017054. The...[Show more]
