1-Deoxy-D-xylulose 5-phosphate synthase (DXS) catalyzes the initial step of the plastidial 2C-methyl-D-erythritol-4-phosphate (DOXP-MEP) pathway involved in isoprenoid biosynthesis. In this study, we cloned the complete cDNA of potato DXS gene that was designated StDXS1. StDXS1 cDNA encodes for 719 amino acid residues, with MW of 77.8 kDa, and is present in(More)
In cereals, ADP-glucose transporter protein plays an important role in starch biosynthesis. It acts as a main gate for the transport of ADP-glucose, the main precursor for starch biosynthesis during grain filling, from the cytosol into the amyloplasts of endospermic cells. In this study, we have shed some light on the molecular and biochemical(More)
This study aimed to dissect the function of the Isochorismatase Hydrolase (ICSH1) gene in Verticillium dahliae's pathogenesis on potato. VdICSH1 was up-regulated in V. dahliae after induction with extracts from potato tissues. Its expression increased more in response to root extracts than to leaf and stem extracts. However, such expression in response to(More)
