This is the amplicon context sequence in accordance with the minimum information for the publication of real-time quantitative PCR experiements (MIQE) guidelines. For more details, please refer to the following publication, "Primer Sequence Disclosure: A Clarification of the MIQE Guidelines."
Real-time PCR probe assay designed for gene expression analysis. Probe assays consist of unlabeled PCR primers and a dual labeled fluorescent probe.
PrimePCR™ PreAmp for Probe Assay: 4CL5, Arabidopsis
PrimePCR™ Template for Probe Assay: 4CL5, Arabidopsis
The gene encodes a 4-coumarate coenzyme A ligase being able to use sinapate as substrate. The catalytic efficiency was in the following (descending) order: p-coumaric acid, caffeic acid, 5-OH-ferulic acid, ferulic acid and sinapic acid. At4CL5 was unable to use cinnamic acid as substrate. Knockout of At4CL5 (4cl5) revealed no effect on syringyl lignin content indicating that the activity observed does probably not occur in vivo.
