In order to make better use of the resistance-related genes of sugarcane wild species Erianthus fulvus Ness., and to provide reliable candidate genes for resistance breeding of transgenic sugarcane. In this research, we used electronic cloning and RT-PCR to clone a gene that was induced by drought stress in the wild species of Erianthus fulvus (Kun ming 99-2), and named it FfNAC (GenBank ID: MT499790). Bioinformatics analysis shows that the ORF of the EfNAC is 765 bp in length, encodes 254 amino acids in total, and has a conserved NAM Superfamily. EfNAC protein is mainly composed of random coils and alpha helices, without signal peptide, with multiple phosphorylation sites, and no transmembrane structure. this research provides theoretical basis and technical support for in-depth research of the molecular regulation mechanism of drought stress in the sugarcane and the drought-resistant breeding of transgenic sugarcane.
