Abstract
<div><p><i>Salvia miltiorrhiza</i> Bunge, a perennial plant of Lamiaceae, accumulates abietane-type diterpenoids of tanshinones in root, which have been used as traditional Chinese medicine to treat neuroasthenic insomnia and cardiovascular diseases. However, to date the biosynthetic pathway of tanshinones is only partially elucidated and the mechanism for their root-specific accumulation remains unknown. To identify enzymes and transcriptional regulators involved in the biosynthesis of tanshinones, we conducted transcriptome profiling of <i>S. miltiorrhiza</i> root and leaf tissues using the 454 GS-FLX pyrosequencing platform, which generated 550,546 and 525,29...
