General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
S-adenosylmethionine hydrolase gene
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Bacteriophage T3 - Phage T3, T3
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) hydrolase
Biological function
The SAMase gene encodes S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) hydrolase which is capable of degrading and thus reducing SAM. The conversion of SAM to 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC) is the first step in ethylene biosynthesis and the lack of sufficient pools of SAM results in significantly reduced synthesis of this phytohormone, which is known to play a key role in fruit ripening.
