Glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) catalyzes the conversion of l-glutamate to γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA). A full-length cDNA encoding GAD (designated as PgGAD) was isolated and characterized from the root of Panax ginseng C. A. Meyer. The length cDNA of PgGAD was 1881 bp and contained a 1491 bp open reading frame (ORF) encoding a glutamate decarboxylase protein of 496 amino acids, possessing a Ser-X-X-Lys active site, which belongs to the GAD group. The deduced amino acid sequence of the PgGAD was… CONTINUE READING
