Cloning and expression of an APETALA1-like gene from Nelumbo nucifera

D. Z. Kong, Shen, X. Y., Guo, B., Dong, J. X., Li, Y. H., and Liu, Y. P., Cloning and expression of an APETALA1-like gene from Nelumbo nucifera, vol. 14, pp. 6819-6829, 2015.

The objective of this study was to clone the full-length cDNA of the APETALA1 (AP1) gene from lotus and analyze its sequence and expression pattern. The full-length cDNA sequence of the NnAP1 gene was amplified from the petals of Nelumbo nucifera ‘Hongxia’ using RT-PCR and rapid amplification of cDNA ends. Bioinformatic methods were used to analyze the sequence characteristics of the gene.

Efficient isolation of high-quality RNA from lotus Nelumbo nucifera ssp nucifera tissues

Nelumbo nucifera is widely used as food, as an ornamental, in medicine, and as packing material; it is also reported to have anti-HIV effects and antioxidant capacity. We sought an improved method for extracting high-quality total RNA from different tissues of N. nucifera. Four methods for RNA extraction were assessed for their ability to recover high-quality RNA applicable for evaluation of polyphenol oxidase (PPO) gene expression profiles.
