To clone and characterize caffeic acid 3-O-methyltransferase (LcCOMT) from the rhizome of Ligusticum chuanxiong, a traditional medicinal herb having a high content of ferulic acid. LcCOMT encoded an ORF of 362 amino acids with a calculated MW of 39,935 Da and pI of 5.94. Polygenetic tree indicated that LcCOMT was attributed to a new member of COMTs in(More)
To clone and characterize a novel bi-functional α-amylase/subtilisin inhibitor (LASI) from the rhizome of Ligusticum chuanxiong, a traditional Chinese medicine. The LASI showed strong homology with members of the Kunitz trypsin inhibitor family. Its putative amino acid sequence has a 40 % identity with that of the α-amylase/subtilisin inhibitor from rice.(More)
