From: Identification and analysis of CYP450 and UGT supergene family members from the transcriptome of Aralia elata (Miq.) seem reveal candidate genes for triterpenoid saponin biosynthesis

Fig. 1

(a) Putative pathways of triterpenoid biosynthesis in A. elata, with the enzymes identified herein included in this diagram. The heatmap highlights the patterns of expression for these genes in the root, stem, and leaf tissues, with RPKM values used for normalization and color-coding conducted accordingly. Broken arrows indicate putative araloside biosynthesis steps that involve CYP450s and UGTs. (b) The selected genes putatively involved in triterpene saponin backbone biosynthesis were quantified via qRT-PCR, with the 2CT approach used to assess gene expression levels relative to those in stem tissues. GAPDH was used for normalization, and data are included with standard deviations
