Molecular cloning and characterization of the Strictosidine synthase Gene from Rauwolfia verticillata

Chen, Rong; Liao, Zhihua; Chen, Min; Wang, Q.; Yang, C.X.; Yang, Y.J.


The strictosidine synthase (STR, EC 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]
