A full length cDNA encoding the SAM synthetase gene was isolated from Chinese cabbage by RT-PCR and contains a 1,182 bp open reading frame encoding a putative 393 amino acid protein. This cDNA insert was subcloned into the pET15b vector to evaluate the expression and further characterize the SAMS gene. Recombinant SAMS was also generated in BL21 cells and(More)
S-adenosyl-L-methionine synthetase (SAMS) catalyzes the synthesis of S-adenosyl-L-methionine, a molecule which functions as the methyl group donor in the biosynthesis of nucleic acids, proteins, lipids, polysaccharides, and secondary products. To analyze the physiological role of endogenous S-adenosyl-L-methionine synthetase, Chinese cabbage was transformed(More)
Squash (Cucurbita spp.) is a major vegetable crop in the Cucurbitaceae family, and has high economic value. Squash is an important foodstuff and has possible health benefits because of its antioxidant, anti-diabetic, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-microbial potential. However, the highly virulent watermelon mosaic virus (WMV) and zucchini yellow mosaic virus(More)
Epigenetics is the study of heritable alternations in gene expression resulting in phenotypic changes without modification of the nucleotide sequence, which could be called a successive evolution. In our study, a plant transformation strategy was employed by using Nicotiana benthamiana (Domin.) to study the heritable stability of the introduced transgenes(More)
The goal of this study is to characterize the BrCSR (B. rapa Cold Stress Resistance) gene and to analyze the expression pattern of genes related to cold response under low temperatures in Chinese cabbage. A transgenic Chinese cabbage line was generated using expression vector pSL101 containing the BrCSR full length CDS. Five transgenic plants of T1-progeny(More)
Pollen of genetically modified (GM) pepper containing the gene for cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) coat protein (CP) and GM Chinese cabbage with high phenylethylisothiocyanate (PEITC) content was investigated for assessment of allergic risk. Amino acid (AA) sequences of the inserted gene products of GM virus resistant pepper and GM Chinese cabbage with high(More)
