Identification of differentially expressed genes involved in early bolting of Angelica sinensis (Apiaceae)

Angelica sinensis is a highly valued medicinal herb, known as female ginseng that is widely cultivated in China. Although A. sinensis is in great demand due to its multiple medicinal and food applications, its early bolting rate (almost 40%) seriously affects crop quality. To better understand its flowering mechanism, cDNA-amplified RFLP analysis was employed to look for gene expression differences between flower bud and shoot apical meristem tissues. Sixty-four primer sets were used, with each primer set amplified to 60 transcript-derived fragments.
