Recently, New Phytologist, a prestigious magazine, published two research papers in succession, reporting the latest progress of the research team of Tang Kexuan, the professor from School of Agriculture & Biology, Shanghai Jiaotong University(SJTU), in the research of artemisinin biosynthesis transcriprtional regulation and trichome development: 1.The jasmonate-responsive AaMYC2 transcription factor positively regulates artemisinin biosynthesis in Artemisia annua; 2.HOMEODOMAIN PROTEIN 1 is required for jasmonate-mediated glandular trichome initiation in Artemisia annua. Sponsored by National High-tech R&D Program (863 Program) and Shanghai Science and Technology Commission key project, these studies laid a solid foundation for the comprehensive analysis of artemisinin biosynthesis metabolic regulatory network and the molecular mechanism of trichome development. Professor Tang Kexuan is the corresponding author of the two papers, and the first author of the two papers is respectively PhD student Shen Qian and Yan Tingxiang from SJTU.
