Geranylgeranyl diphosphate synthase (GGPPS) [EC 2.5.1.29] catalyzes the biosynthesis of geranylgeranyl diphosphate (GGPP), which is a key precursor for diterpenes and, in particular, Taxol, one of the most potent antitumor drugs. In order to investigate the role of GGPP synthase in Taxol biosynthesis, we cloned, characterized, and functionally expressed the(More)
A new gene, designated as BnPrx (GenBank Accession No. DQ078754), was isolated from oilseed rape (Brassica napus) by SMART Rapid Amplification of cDNA Ends (RACE). The full-length cDNA is 1307 bp long and contains a 1062 bp open reading frame (ORF), which encodes a 354 amino acid peroxidase precursor, with a 31 aa N-terminal signal peptide and a 15 aa(More)
