ABSTRACT

Here, we combine elicitors and transcriptomics to investigate the inducible biosynthesis of the ginsenoside from the Panax quinquefolium. Treatment of P. quinquefolium adventitious root with methyl jasmonate (MJ) results in an increase in ginsenoside content (43.66 mg/g compared to 8.32 mg/g in control group). Therefore, we sequenced the transcriptome of native and MJ treated adventitious root in order to elucidate the key differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in the ginsenoside biosynthetic pathway. Through DEG analysis, we found that 5,759 unigenes were up-regulated and 6,389 unigenes down-regulated in response to MJ treatment. Several defense-related genes (48) were identified, participating in salicylic acid (SA), jasmonic acid (JA), nitric oxide (NO) and abscisic acid (ABA) signal pathway. Additionally, we mapped 72 unigenes to the ginsenoside biosynthetic pathway. Four cytochrome P450s (CYP450) were likely to catalyze hydroxylation at C-16 (c15743_g1, c39772_g1, c55422_g1) and C-30 (c52011_g1) of the triterpene backbone. UDP-xylose synthases (c52571_g3) was selected as the candidate, which was likely to involve in ginsenoside Rb3 biosynthesis.

Mentions: Phylogenetic analysis showed the relationship of P. quinquefolium adventitious root GT sequences to other functionally characterized members of plant GT families (Fig. 7). Among them, alpha-1,3-glucosyltransferase (c47755_g1) and UDP-xylose synthases (c52571_g3) were regarded as a lead candidate GTs responsible for triterpene saponin biosynthesis, because of its close relation to triterpene glucosyltransferases UGTPg100, UGTPg101, UGT74AE2. Hence, there were 6 candidate CYP450 unigenes and 2 candidate GT unigenes.
