Species-Dependent Expression 6 P-Hydroxylase Gene in of the Hyoscyamine the Pericycle '

Abstract

l h e tropane alkaloid scopolamine i s synthesized in the pericycle of branch roots in certain species of the Solanaceae. l h e enzyme responsible for the synthesis of scopolamine from hyoscyamine i s hyoscyamine C&hydroxylase (H6H). The gene for H6H was isolated from Hyoscyamus niger. It has an exon/intron organization very similar to those for ethylene… (More)
