Title:
TRITERPENE OXIDASE DERIVED FROM PLANT BELONGING TO GENUS GLYCHYRRHIZA, GENE ENCODING THE TRITERPENE OXIDASE, AND USE OF THE PROTEIN OR THE GENE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2009/020231
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Disclosed are: a protein having an activity of oxidizing a dammarane triterpene; a gene encoding the protein; and use of the protein or the gene. Specifically disclosed are: a protein having an activity of oxidizing a dammarane triterpene, which is produced from a plant belonging the genus Glychyrrhiza; a gene encoding the protein; and use of the protein or the gene. The protein is depicted in SEQ ID NO: 1, 2 or 13, and the gene encoding the protein is depicted in SEQ ID NO: 3, 4 or 14, respectively. A transformant having the gene introduced therein is also produced, which enables to produce a triterpene oxidase.
