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: CCD1, Arabidopsis
PrimePCR™ Template for Probe Assay: CCD1, Arabidopsis
Encodes a protein with 9-cis-epoxycarotenoid dioxygenase activity. The enzyme was shown to act on a variety of carotenoid including beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and all-trans-violaxanthin. When those compounds are used as substrates, the major reaction product detected is a C14 dialdehyde: 4,9-dimethyldodeca-2,4,6,8,10-pentaene-1,12-dial. The enzyme did not cleave as efficiently carotenoids containing 9-cis-double or allenic bonds.
