Isolation, characterization and functional analysis of a novel 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A synthase gene (GbHMGS2) from Ginkgo biloba

Ginkgo biloba, an industrial plant of high medicinal value, is resistant to pest, disease infections, and environmental stresses. 3-Hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A synthase (HMGS) is a key mevalonic acid pathway enzyme that plays crucial roles in plant defense mechanism. In the present study, a 1407-bp HMGS gene, GbHMGS2, encoding 468 amino acid… CONTINUE READING
