Amorpha-4,11-diene synthase (ADS) of Artemisia annua L. is a sesquiterpene cyclase that catalyzes the conversion of farnesyl diphosphate into amorpha-4,11-diene in the biosynthesis of the antimalarial artemisinin. To explore the mechanisms regulating the tissue-specific and developmental distributions of ADS, a full ADS promoter was generated using PCR, and fused to GUS for introduction into Arabidopsis thaliana. ADSpro::GUS fusion transcripts were organ-specific, mainly present in the anthers… CONTINUE READING
