Papaver somniferum (opium poppy) is the source for several pharmaceutical benzylisoquinoline alkaloids (BIA) including morphine, codeine and sanguinarine. In an attempt to identify additional biosynthetic steps at the molecular level, a large expressed sequence tag (EST) dataset with a total of 20,532 sequences from opium poppy were assembled and functionally annotated. Sequence cleaning filter showed 20,445 (709 trimmed) valid sequences and 87 trashed sequences at 96% minimum identity…

Expression analysis of salt stress related expressed sequence tags (ESTs) from Aeluropus littoralis by quantitative real-time PCR
Differential regulation of these genes were observed in root and tissue which confi rm their role in salt stress tolerance.
Characterization of EST-SSR markers in durum wheat EST library and functional analysis of SSR-containing EST fragments
Estimated perfect EST-SSRs have been identified and can be used for developing ESS-SSR-based detection tool for durum wheat in future studies and will be a useful resource for molecular breeding, genetics, genomics, and environmental stress studies.
EST (Expressed Sequence Tag): A Technique for Identification of Plant Secondary Metabolite Genes
These ESTs are an attractive tool for decoding the metabolic pathways rather than whole genome sequencing and are nowadays widely used due to cost-effectiveness and efficiency as compared to other techniques.


Functional characterization of a novel benzylisoquinoline O-methyltransferase suggests its involvement in papaverine biosynthesis in opium poppy (Papaver somniferum L).
The benzylisoquinoline alkaloids are a highly diverse group of about 2500 compounds which accumulate in a species-specific manner. Despite the numerous compounds which could be identified, the
Integration of deep transcriptome and proteome analyses reveals the components of alkaloid metabolism in opium poppy cell cultures
The integration of deep transcriptome and proteome analyses provides an effective platform to catalogue the components of secondary metabolism, and to identify genes encoding uncharacterized enzymes.
Comparative transcript and alkaloid profiling in Papaver species identifies a short chain dehydrogenase/reductase involved in morphine biosynthesis.
One of these cDNAs, exhibiting an expression pattern very similar to previously isolated c DNAs coding for enzymes in benzylisoquinoline biosynthesis, showed the highest amino acid identity to reductases in menthol biosynthesis and was identified as salutaridine reductase (SalR).
Analyses of Expressed Sequence Tags from Apple1
A substantial expressed sequence tag collection from various tissues of apple is produced, focusing on fruit tissues of the cultivar Royal Gala, indicating the presence of many genes involved in disease resistance and the biosynthesis of flavor and health-associated compounds.
Comparison of 454-ESTs from Huperzia serrata and Phlegmariurus carinatus reveals putative genes involved in lycopodium alkaloid biosynthesis and developmental regulation
The 454-EST resource allowed for the first large-scale acquisition of ESTs from H. serrata and P. carinatus, which are representative members of the Huperziaceae family, and discovered many genes likely to be involved in the biosynthesis of bioactive compounds and transcriptional regulation as well as a large number of potential microsatellite markers.
The role of phloem sieve elements and laticifers in the biosynthesis and accumulation of alkaloids in opium poppy.
The localization of seven biosynthetic enzymes to the sieve elements provides strong support for the unique, cell type-specific biosynthesis of benzylisoquinoline alkaloids in the opium poppy.

The biology of coffee and tomato may be united into one common network of shared discoveries, resources and information based on sequences from approximately 47,000 cDNA clones derived from five different stages/tissues.
Pepper EST database: comprehensive in silico tool for analyzing the chili pepper (Capsicum annuum) transcriptome
The Pepper EST database is designed to provide a workbench for identifying unigenes in pepper plants, analyzing expression patterns in different developmental tissues and under conditions of stress, and comparing the ESTs with those of other members of the Solanaceae family.
