Molecular Cloning of Flavone Synthase I Gene from Cumin (Cuminum Cyminum)

  title={Molecular Cloning of Flavone Synthase I Gene from Cumin (Cuminum Cyminum)},
  author={Kobra Yousefi and Farzaneh Razmju and Aziz Ahmad Osmani},
Cuminum cyminum. L is one of the member Apiaceae family. This plant hasanticancer and antioxidant traits. The main purpose of this research is cloning of flavone synthase I gene from Caraway Cumin (Cuminum cyminum) indigenous in Iran.In order to cloning FNSI after extraction of total RNA, cDNA Library were constructed using oligo dT primers and gene amplification of FNSI was performed. After cutting the amplified gene cloned in expression plasmid PET28a and was transferred to the DH5α bacterial… 

Figures and Tables from this paper



Characterization of flavone synthase I from rice.

OsFNS I-1 encodes a flavone synthase I, the first type I FNS I found outside of the Apiaceae family, and it is found that the cofactors oxoglutarate, FeSO(4), ascorbate and catalase are required for this reaction.

Cloning of parsley flavone synthase I.

Evolution of Flavone Synthase I from Parsley Flavanone 3β-Hydroxylase by Site-Directed Mutagenesis1[W][OA]

The results suggest that the 7-fold substitution affects the orientation of the substrate in the active-site pocket such that this is followed by syn-elimination of hydrogen from carbon-2 (FNS I reaction) rather than the rebound hydroxylation of carbon-3 (FHT reaction).

Salicylic acid and its function in plant immunity.

Characterization of a number of genes functioning in SA biosynthesis, conjugation, accumulation, signaling, and crosstalk with other hormones has sketched the finely tuned immune response network, holding the potential for isolating additional mutants related to SA-mediated defense signaling.

The Identification of Maize and Arabidopsis Type I FLAVONE SYNTHASEs Links Flavones with Hormones and Biotic Interactions1[OPEN]

The results presented here suggest cross talk between the flavone and salicylic acid pathways in Arabidopsis; in this way, pathogens would induce flavones to decrease salicyolic acid and, hence, increase susceptibility.

The effects of plant flavonoids on mammalian cells: implications for inflammation, heart disease, and cancer.

Western medicine has not yet used flavonoids therapeutically, even though their safety record is exceptional, and suggestions are made where such possibilities may be worth pursuing.

Lipid Peroxidation Induced by Phenolics in Conjunction with Aluminum Ions

Al3+ has a potential to induce oxidative stress in plants by stimulating the prooxidant nature of endogenous phenolic compounds by stimulatingThe aluminum ions (Al3+) stimulate phenolic-dependent lipid peroxidation.

Arabidopsis DMR6 encodes a putative 2OG-Fe(II) oxygenase that is defense-associated but required for susceptibility to downy mildew.

The map-based cloning of DMR6 was found to encode a 2-oxoglutarate (2OG)-Fe(II) oxygenase of unknown function, which suggests dmr6-mediated resistance results from the activation of plant defense responses.
