Identification of Iridoid Glucoside Transporters in Catharanthus roseus

PMCID: 5921532
PMID: 28922750
DOI: 10.1093/pcp/pcx097

[…] By performing BLASTX searches in the CathaCyc database [a metabolic pathway database from C. roseus built from RNA-Seq data () (] using the nucleotide sequence of AtNPF2.9 (AT1G18880) and CRG200 (Genbank accession AM2324 […]


Examining the transcriptional response of overexpressing anthranilate synthase in the hairy roots of an important medicinal plant Catharanthus roseus by RNA seq

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 4859987
PMID: 27154243
DOI: 10.1186/s12870-016-0794-4

[…] ntigs (>200 bp) were obtained with a N50 length of 1418 nucleotides (nt) and an average length of 831 nt. This assembly resulted in a unigene set of 30,281, which was comparable to 31,450 unigenes in CathaCyc (a Metabolic Pathway Database Built from Catharanthus roseus RNA-Seq Data) []. The distribution of the lengths of assembled transcripts from Trinity method and from published CathaCyc is show […]


Characterization of a second secologanin synthase isoform producing both secologanin and secoxyloganin allows enhanced de novo assembly of a Catharanthus roseus transcriptome

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4541752
PMID: 26285573
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-1678-y

[…] each isoform.We performed a detailed inspection of the current transcriptomic resources, available from Medicinal Plant Genomic Resources [], PhytoMetaSyn [] (with Illumina reads or with 454 reads), Cathacyc/Orcae [] and a newly prepared transcriptome by a NIPGR research team []. The corresponding datasets will be thereafter named mpgrCra, PMSIllu (Illumina reads), PMS454 (454 reads), ccOrcae and […]


Transcriptome Analysis of Catharanthus roseus for Gene Discovery and Expression Profiling

PLoS One
PMCID: 4114786
PMID: 25072156
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0103583

[…] (s) of interest. C. roseus (L.) var. Prabal is well known for its high alkaloid content and we were interested in expression analysis of important alkaloids (TIA) biosynthesis pathway genes. We used CathaCyc database for the analysis of these pathways. The common precursor of TIAs, strictosidine, is the central intermediate formed by the coupling of tryptamine (shikimate pathway) and monoterpene […]
