Development of Transcriptomic Resources for Interrogating the Biosynthesis of Monoterpene Indole Alkaloids in Medicinal Plant Species

Figure 7

Expression patterns of known genes in monoterpene indole alkaloid biosynthesis across different tissues and treatments.

Expression values in log2 FPKM (fragments per Kilobase of transcript per million fragments mapped) were calculated, negative values were set to zero and then were clustered using R [39]. A) Catharanthus roseus: Expression values were sorted in three major groups: Developmental tissues, Yeast extract (YE) treatment of suspension cells (SC), and Methyl jasmonate (MJ) treatment of sterile seedlings (SS) and hairy roots (HR). B) Rauvolfia serpentina. Expression values shown represent the different developmental tissues.
