Abstract:A full length cDNA (ArM1) encoding myrosinase was cloned from horseradish root by RACE-PCR. ArM1 has an open reading frame of 1,614 nucleotides with a deduced protein of 538 amino acid and molecular mass of 61.6 kDa. Heterologous expression of ArM1 in Spodoptera frugiperda insect cells resulted in an immune active myrosinase protein product and gave rise to a band of approximately 66 kDa in western blot analysis. ArM1 has the highest overall amino acid identity (72%) with Arabidopsis thaliana myrosinase TGG2. Phylogenetic analysis shows that ArM1 gene does not cluster with any of the currently known myrosinase subfamily and it may represent another myrosinase subfamily in root tissue.
