The full-length gene of an ascorbate peroxidase (PutAPx) was isolated from Puccinellia tenuiflora Ohwi cDNA library. The gene is 1 125 bp in length and it has an ORF of 876 bp, which encoded a protein of 291 amino-acid with an estimated molecular weight 32 kD and an isoelectric point of 7.71. Blasting at NCBI, we found that PutAPx showed high similarity (89.7%, 94.3%, 94.2%, 50.7% and 79.6%) to 5 different gramineae species (Oryza sativa L., Hordeum vulgare L., Triticum aestivum, Lolium perenne L., and Zea mays). The result of phylogenetic tree showed that PutAPx has the closdest genetic distance with Hordeum vulgare L. and Triticum aestivum. Transgenic yeast (InVSC1), expressing PutAPx gene, under the inducement withβ-galactose showed higher stress resistance in oxidation stress than control. In this study, we successfully cloned an ascorbate peroxidase (PutAPx) and studied in primary levle, which laid the foundation for the future study in the mechanism of oxidative stress mechanism of the role of the foundation establish.
