Green microalga Ankistrodesmus convolutus Corda is a fast growing alga which produces appreciable amount of carotenoids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. To our knowledge, this is the first report on the construction of cDNA library and preliminary analysis of ESTs for this species. The titers of the primary and amplified cDNA libraries were 1.1 × 106 and(More)
The availability of highly active homologous promoters is critical in the development of a transformation system and improvement of the transformation efficiency. To facilitate transformation of green microalga Ankistrodesmus convolutus which is considered as a potential candidate for many biotechnological applications, a highly-expressed native promoter(More)
The majority of Hevea (Hevea brasiliensis Muell. Arg.) genetic resource in Vietnam derived from the IRRDB'81 germplasm collected in the Amazonian habitats of the genus. Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis was used to examine the genetic diversity and structure of the IRRDB'81 germplasm. A total of 59 accessions from 13 different districts of(More)
An initial study on gene cloning and characterization of unicellular green microalga Ankistrodesmus convolutus was carried out to isolate and characterize the full-length cDNA of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase small subunit (RbcS) as a first step towards elucidating the structure of A. convolutus RbcS gene. The full-length of A. convolutus(More)
The rapid and effective method for the isolation of RNA from green microalga Ankistrodesmus convolutus based on homogenization in a simple CTAB buffer and selective precipitation of RNA with lithium chloride is developed. This procedure avoids the use of toxic chaotropic agents and phenol while high concentration of dithiothreitol is used to inhibit RNase(More)
Isolation of promoter sequences from known gene sequences is a tedious task in genome-related research. An efficient method of obtaining the promoter sequences is necessary in order to successfully use targeted promoters for genetic manipulations. Here, efficiency and usefulness of two PCR-based methods, namely: ligation-mediated PCR and thermal asymmetric(More)
Using various chromatographic methods, five new steroidal saponins named taccavietnamosides A-E (1-5) and three known, (24S,25R)-spirost-5-en-3β,24-diol 3-O-α-l-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→2)-[α-l-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→3)]-β-d-glucopyranoside (6), (24S,25R)-spirost-5-en-3β,24-diol(More)
Two new steroidal glucosides, chantriolides D and E (1 and 2), along with four known compounds, chantriolide A (3), chantriolide B (4), chantriolide C (5), and (25S)-spirost-5-en-3-ol 3-O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1-->2)-O-[α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1-->3)]-β-D-glucopyranoside (6) were isolated from the rhizomes of Tacca chantrieri. Their structures were determined(More)
