    emisinin is currently the best therapeutic against both drug-resistant and cerebral-malaria-causing strains of Plasmodium falciparum. Allene oxide cyclase (AOC) is the key enzyme in the biosynthetic pathway of jasmonates. In this study, a full-length cDNA of AOC gene (named as AaAOC) was cloned...

    The phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) plays an important role in plant development and environmental stress response. In this study, we cloned an ABA receptor orthologue, AaPYL9, from Artemisia annua L. AaPYL9 is expressed highly in leaf and flower. AaPYL9 protein can be localized in both nucleus...
