Among the biologically active triterpenes, friedelin has the most-rearranged structure produced by the oxidosqualene cyclases and is the only one containing a cetonic group. In this study, we cloned and functionally characterized friedelin synthase and one cycloartenol synthase from Maytenus ilicifolia (Celastraceae). The complete coding sequences of these(More)
Material and methods For this purpose, we adopted the strategy of RT-PCR using degenerated primers obtained from sequences of known plant OSC genes. Total RNA was extracted from leaves of M. ilicifolia and used in the synthesis of cDNA. The PCR amplification of core fragments of OSC genes was performed with partially degenerated primers designed to anneal(More)
