[Molecular cloning and characterization of two oxidative stress related genes from medicinal fungus Polyporus umbellatus].

[Article in Chinese]

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To clone the NADPH gene (PuNOX) and Glyoxal oxidase gene (PuGLOX) from a medicinal fungus Polyporus umbellatus, and to carry out the bioinformatic analysis.

METHODS:

We used the Rapid Amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) technique to obtain the full length cDNA of these two genes. We used a series of bioinformatic tools to characterize physiochemical properties of the two deduced protein. The analyses of multiple alignment and phylogenetic trees were performed using Bioeditor and MEGA 5.0 softwares.

RESULTS:

The entire cDNA of PuNOX and PuGLOX were 1674 bp, 1723 bp in length and encoded a 557-amino acid protein and 515-amino acid protein with a molecular weight of 63.845 kDa and 55.891 kDa and the isoelectric point of 5.58 and 4.82, respectively. PuNOX had high identities (74 to 80%) with NADPH peroxidase from other fungus. From the evolutionary tree, PuNOX was closely related to that of Pleurotus ostreatus. PuGLOX had high identities (> 50%) with Glyoxal oxidases from various fungus. Phylogenetic tree analysis suggested that PuGLOX was closely related to that of Phanerochaete chrysosporium.

CONCLUSION:

Molecular characterization of the two oxidative stress related genes will be useful for further functional determination of the genes involved in the sclerotium development of Polyporus umbellatus.
