Genetic heterogeneity of ribosomal RNA gene and matK gene in Panax notoginseng.

Previously, 185 ribosomal RNA gene and matK gene sequences of Chinese herbal medicines, Ginseng Radix, Panacis Japonici Rhizoma and Panacis Quinquefolli Radix were shown to correspond with those of the original plants, Panax ginseng, P. japonicus and P. quinquefolius, respectively, with the species-specific sequences especially for 18S rRNA gene sequences… CONTINUE READING
