Camptothecin (CPT) belongs to a group of monoterpenoidindole alkaloids (TIAs) and its derivatives such as irinothecan and topothecan have been widely used worldwide for the treatment of cancer, giving rise to rapidly increasing market demands. Genes from Catharanthus roseus encoding strictosidine synthase (STR) and geraniol 10-hydroxylase (G10H), were(More)
Tropane alkaloids (TAs) such as anisodamine, anisodine, hyoscyamine and scopolamine are extensively used in clinical practice as anticholinergic agents. Anisodus acutangulus produces TAs in root tissue, and although several genes involved in scopolamine biosynthesis have been cloned, yet the biosynthetic pathway of TAs remains poorly understood.

Camptothecin (CPT) is a kind of modified monoterpene indole alkaloid firstly identified from woody plant Camptotheca acuminata, and its semisynthetic CPT analogs irinothecan and topothecan are clinically used for the treatment of various cancers throughout the world. However, the extraction of CPT from limited natural CPT-producing plant resources couldn’t(More)
