The MVA pathway genes expressions and accumulation of celastrol in Tripterygium wilfordii suspension cells in response to methyl jasmonate treatment.

Celastrol is an important bioactive triterpenoid in traditional Chinese medicinal plant, Tripterygium wilfordii. Methyl Jasmonate (MJ) is a common plant hormone which can regulate the secondary metabolism in higher plants. In this study, the mevalonate (MVA) pathway genes in T. wilfordii were firstly cloned. The suspension cells of T. wilfordii were… CONTINUE READING
