Tryptophan decarboxylase (TDC), which catalyzes the conversion of Trp to tryptamine, provides a common backbone for many secondary metabolites, and is important in defending plants from abiotic stress such as pathogen infection and insect attack. In this study, we cloned two TDC genes, AeVTDC1 and AeVTDC2, from Ae. variabilis accession No. 1 with resistance to cereal cyst nematode (CCN) and root-knot nematode (RKN). AeVTDC1 and AeVTDC2 encode polypeptides of 510 and 518 amino acids… Expand
