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: 4CL3, Arabidopsis
PrimePCR™ Template for Probe Assay: 4CL3, Arabidopsis
encodes an isoform of 4-coumarate:CoA ligase (4CL), which is involved in the last step of the general phenylpropanoid pathway. mRNA levels are not induced in response to wounding or to fungal infection by P. parasitica. mRNA is expressed in flowers, to a lesser degree in mature leaves and siliques and marginally in seedling roots and bolting stems of mature plants. The catalytic efficiency was in the following (descending) order: p-coumaric acid, caffeic acid, ferulic acid, cinnamic acid and 5-OH-ferulic acid. At4CL3 was unable to use sinapic acid as substrate.
