De novo transcriptome sequence of Senna tora provides insights into anthraquinone biosynthesis.

Senna tora is an annual herb with rich source of anthraquinones that have tremendous pharmacological properties.

However, there is little mention of genetic information for this species, especially regarding the biosynthetic pathways of anthraquinones.

To understand the key genes and regulatory mechanism of anthraquinone biosynthesis pathways, we performed spatial and temporal transcriptome sequencing of S. tora using short RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) and long-read isoform sequencing (Iso-Seq) technologies, and generated two unigene sets composed of 118,635 and 39,364, respectively.
