The 14-3-3 protein family regulates diverse physiological processes in plants. In this study, we identified eight 14-3-3 genes (designated MaGF14a to MaGF14h) from the mulberry tree. The phylogenetic tree demonstrated that MaGF14s can be divided into two major groups. Tissue-specific expression profiles indicated that the eight MaGF14s were expressed in all(More)
Chalcone synthase (CHS) is the pivotal enzyme that catalyzes the first committed step of the phenylpropanoid pathway leading to flavonoids. Here, five CHS genes were determined in mulberry (Morus atropurpurea Roxb.). Interestingly, phylogenetic analysis tended to group three MaCHSs in the stilbene synthase (STS) family and initially annotated these as(More)
Stilbenes have been recognized for their beneficial physiological effects on human health. Stilbene synthase (STS) is the key enzyme of resveratrol biosynthesis and has been studied in numerous plants. Here, four MaSTS genes were isolated and identified in mulberry (Morus atropurpurea Roxb.). The expression levels of MaSTS genes and the accumulation of(More)
