Alkaloids, which are naturally occurring amines, are biosynthesized and accumulated in plant tissues such as roots, leaves, and stems. Many alkaloids have pharmacological effects on humans and animals. Cytochrome P450 (P450 or CYP) monooxygenases are known to play key roles in the biosynthesis of alkaloids in higher plants. A cDNA clone encoding a P450(More)
We investigated the molecular basis of a severe factor V (FV) deficiency in a Japanese female, and identified two distinct mutations in the FV gene, a novel cytosine insertion (1943insC) and a previously reported point mutation (A5279G). We expected the patient to be a compound heterozygote for those mutations, as a 1943insC, but not an A5279G, was found in(More)
