Abstract: This study was aimed to clone the GGPS (geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate synthase) gene from Lepidium apetalum, to analyze its sequence, and to express the protein in E.coli expression system. Specific PCR cloning primers were designed for GGPS gene from Lepidium apetalum according to the full-length sequence from a previous transcriptome sequencing project. PCR amplification was performed with this primer pair on a leaf c DNA template. TA cloning, sequencing and sequence analysis were performed. GGPS gene from Lepidium apetalum was expressed in the E.coli expression system. The results showed that the full-length GGPS c DNA from Lepidium apetalum was 1 146 bp coding a protein of 381 amino acids. The La GGPS protein had an isoprenoid synthase domain. According to a phylogenetic tree constructed with multiple alignment of GGPS protein sequences from various plant species, GGPS protein from Lepidium apetalum was the closest to Arabidopsis thaliana and Sinapis alba. The prokaryotic expression vector p ET-32a-La GGPS was also constructed successfully. The protein was expressed in E.coli BL21 strain. It was concluded that the cloning and prokaryotic expression of La GGPS gene provided a foundation for a follow-up research of its function with protein purification and activity analysis.
