Tyrosine decarboxylase initializes salidroside biosynthesis. Metabolic characterization of tyrosine decarboxylase gene from Rhodiola crenulata (RcTYDC) revealed that it played an important role in salidroside biosynthesis. Recombinant 53 kDa RcTYDC converted tyrosine into tyramine. RcTYDC gene expression was induced coordinately with the expression of(More)
The complete chloroplast genome of the wild Cupressus gigantea (Cupressaceae) is determined in this study. The circular genome is 128 244 bp in length with 115 single copy genes and two duplicated genes (trnI-CAU and trnQ-UUG). This genome contains 82 protein-coding genes, four ribosomal RNA genes and 31 transfer RNA genes. In these genes, eight genes(More)
Mila Mount in Southeast Tibet is the west boundary of the horizontal distribution of Betula platyphylla. It is also the highest altitude area in China and the world, where Betula platyphylla is distributed. Based on the investigation of regional sample plots and the analysis of analytic trees, this paper compared the biomass and yield of Betula platyphylla(More)
Cupressus gigantea Cheng et L. K. Fu is an endangered conifer endemic to Tibet of China. In this study, 16 polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed using paired-end Illumina shotgun sequencing. The number of alleles varied between 3 and 18, with an average of 8.063 alleles per locus. The observed (H O) and expected heterozygosities (H E) ranged(More)
Mirabilis himalaica is an endangered medicinal plant species in the Tibetan Plateau. The two genes respectively encoding chalcone synthase (MhCHS) and chalcone isomerase (MhCHI) were isolated and characterized from M. himalaica. The sequence analysis revealed that the two genes were similar with their corresponding homologous genes in other plants. The(More)
The complete chloroplast genome of Juniperus cedrus is a circular molecule of 127 126 bp in length with 115 single copy genes and two duplicated genes (trnI-CAU and trnQ-UUG). The genome contains 82 protein-coding genes, four ribosomal RNA genes and 33 transfer RNA genes. In these genes, eight genes (rpl16, rpl2, rpoC1, petD, petB, ndhB, ndhA and atpF)(More)
The two tree peony species, namely, Paeonia ludlowii (Stern & G. Taylor) D. Y. Hong and P. delavayi Franch, belongs to the section Moutan Paeonia (Paeoniaceae). They are the only sources of yellow pigment in tree peony cultivar breeding. P. ludlowii has been listed as “critically endangered”, whereas P. delavayi has been listed as “near threatened” species(More)
Trehalose plays an important role in metabolic regulation and abiotic stress tolerance in plants. Trehalose contents are potentially modulated by trehalose-6-phosphate synthase (TPS), which is a key enzyme in the trehalose biosynthetic pathway. Using available wheat expressed sequence tag sequence information from NCBI and two wheat genome databases, we(More)
