WRKY proteins comprise a large family of transcription factors and play important regulatory roles in plant development and defense response. The WRKY gene family in Salvia miltiorrhiza has not been characterized. A total of 61 SmWRKYs were cloned from S. miltiorrhiza. Multiple sequence alignment showed that SmWRKYs could be classified into 3 groups and 8(More)
Gibberellin (GA), a classical phytohormone, plays significant roles in plant growth and development. It shares the important intermediate diphosphate precursor, GGPP, with the main lipophilic bioactive components, diterpenoid tanshinones in Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge, one of the most important Traditional Chinese Medicine materials and an emerging model(More)
Identification and characterization of 5,446 mlncRNAs from Salvia miltiorrhiza showed that the majority of identified mlncRNAs were stress responsive, providing a framework for elucidating mlncRNA functions in S. miltiorrhiza. mRNA-like noncoding RNAs (mlncRNAs) are transcribed by RNA polymerase II and are polyadenylated, capped and spliced. They play(More)
Salvia miltiorrhiza is a well-known material of traditional Chinese medicine. Understanding the regulatory mechanisms of phenolic acid biosynthesis and metabolism are important for S. miltiorrhiza quality improvement. We report here that S. miltiorrhiza contains 19 polyphenol oxidases (PPOs), forming the largest PPO gene family in plant species to our(More)
Carthami flos, the dried petal of safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) has been widely used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, in which quinochalcone glucosides such as hydrosafflower yellow A (HSYA), carthamin are uniquely present and have been identified as active compounds. In the present study, through(More)
