Abstract

Ζ-carotene isomerase (Z-ISO) is an important enzyme in carotenoid biosynthesis. Here, the Brassica oleracea var. capitata Z-ISO (BocZ-ISO) gene sequence was obtained from Brassica database (BRAD), and preformed for bioinformatics analysis. The BocZ-ISO gene mapped to chromosomes 5, and contains an open reading frame of 1,092 bp that encodes a 363-amino acid protein with a calculated molecular mass of 40.24 kD and an isoelectric point (pI) of 9.56. Subcellular localization predicted the BocZ-ISO gene was in the chloroplast. The conserved domain of the BocZ-ISO protein is COG4094. The Z-ISO protein is most closely related to B. napus and B. rapa. The findings of the present study provide a molecular basis for the elucidation of Z-ISO gene function in cabbage.
