Molecular cloning and characterization of GbMECT and GbMECP gene promoters from Ginkgo biloba

S. Y. Cheng, Li, L. L., Yuan, H. H., Xu, F., and Cheng, H., Molecular cloning and characterization of GbMECT and GbMECP gene promoters from Ginkgo biloba, vol. 14, pp. 15112-15122, 2015.

Ginkgolides are key pharmaceutical components in Ginkgo biloba. Using the cDNA sequence of the MECP and MECT genes to design primers, we obtained the promoters of these genes from Ginkgo genomic DNA using the genome walking method. The two promoters were 744 and 982 bp in length, respectively. The cis-elements of the GbMECPs and GbMECT promoters were predicted and analyzed using the plant cis-acting regulatory element database. We found major cis-elements in the sequence of the GbMECT and GbMECPs promoters.
