The major flavonoids accumulated in leaves of Japanese gentian (Gentiana triflora) were determined as isoorientin (luteolin 6-C-glucoside) and isoorientin 4'-glucoside. A cDNA (GtUF6CGT1) was isolated that encoded the UDP-glucose-dependent glucosyltransferase that is involved in C-glycosylflavone biosynthesis. The recombinant GtUF6CGT1 protein could transfer a glucose group to the C6 position of a flavone skeleton through C-linkage, using UDP-glucose as the glucosyl donor. These C… CONTINUE READING
