An analysis of the thunder god vine (genus Tripterygium) offers innovative analytical approaches for the identificationand localization of specialized metabolites. Members of the genus Tripterygium are known to contain an astonishing diversity of specialized metabolites. The lack of authentic standards has been an impediment to the rapid identification of such metabolites in extracts. We employed an approach that involves the searching of multiple, complementary chromatographic and… 
Biosynthesis of Diterpenoids in Tripterygium Adventitious Root Cultures1[OPEN]
TLDR
Considering the significant enrichment of diterpenoids in the culture medium, fast-growing adventitious root cultures may hold promise as a sustainable resource for the large-scale production of triptolide.
Assessing Chemical Diversity in Psilotum nudum (L.) Beauv., a Pantropical Whisk Fern That Has Lost Many of Its Fern-Like Characters
TLDR
Results indicate a differential localization of metabolites with potentially tissue-specific functions in defenses against biotic and abiotic stresses in Members of the Psilotales and other members of the fern lineage.
The genome analysis of Tripterygium wilfordii reveals TwCYP712K1 and TwCYP712K2 responsible for oxidation of friedelin in celastrol biosynthesis pathway
TLDR
Two CYP450 genes, TwCyp712K1 and TwCYP712K2 have been proven for C-29 position oxidation of friedelin to produce polpunonic acid, which clarifies the second biosynthesis step of celastrol.
The genome of Tripterygium wilfordii and characterization of the celastrol biosynthesis pathway
TLDR
By integrating genome, transcriptome and metabolite analyses, as well as in vivo and in vitro enzyme assays of two cytochrome P450 (CYP450) genes, it is possible to investigate the second biosynthesis step of celastrol and demonstrate that this was derived from a common ancestor.
