Lithospermic acid B (LSB), the major water-soluble ingredient of Salvia miltiorrhiza (Danshen), has been shown to be an active ingredient responsible for the therapeutic effects of this traditional Chinese herb used to treat cardiac disorders. This study aimed to develop an indirect competitive enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the detection of LSB. Firstly, LSB was chemically conjugated to a modified oil-body protein, lysine-enriched caleosin, recombinantly expressed in Escherichia coli. Antibodies against LSB (Ab-LSB) were successfully generated by immunizing hens with artificial oil bodies constituted with the LSB-conjugated caleosin. Western blotting showed that Ab-LSB specifically recognized LSB, but not the carrier protein, lysine-enriched caleosin. To detect LSB via indirect competitive ELISA, LSB was conjugated with bovine serum albumin (LSB-BSA) and coated on a microplate. The binding between Ab-LSB and LSB-BSA on the microplate was competed dose-dependently in the presence of free LSB with a concentration ranging from 5 to 5 × 104 ng/mL. The IC50 value was approximately determined to be 120 ng/mL for LSB regardless of its complex with a metal ion of Na+, K+ or Mg2+.

The CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats)/Cas9 (CRISPR-associated) system is a powerful genome editing tool that has been used in many species. In this study, we focused on the phenolic acid metabolic pathway in the traditional Chinese medicinal herb Salvia miltiorrhiza, using the CRISPR/Cas9 system to edit the rosmarinic acid synthase gene (SmRAS) in the water-soluble phenolic acid biosynthetic pathway. The single guide RNA (sgRNA) was designed to precisely edit the most important SmRAS gene, which was selected from 11 family members through a bioinformatics analysis. The sequencing results showed that the genomes of 50% of the transgenic regenerated hairy roots had been successfully edited. Five biallelic mutants, two heterozygous mutants and one homozygous mutant were obtained from 16 independent transgenic hairy root lines when the sgRNA was driven by the Arabidopsis U6 promoter, while no mutants were obtained from 13 independent transgenic hairy root lines when the sgRNA was driven by the rice U3 promoter. Subsequently, expression and metabolomics analysis showed that the contents of phenolic acids, including rosmarinic acid (RA) and lithospermic acid B, and the RAS expression level were decreased in the successfully edited hairy root lines, particularly in the homozygous mutants. In addition, the level of the RA precursor 3,4-dihydroxyphenyllactic acid clearly increased. These results indicated that the CRISPR/Cas9 system can be utilized to identify important genes in a gene family with the assistance of bioinformatics analysis and that this new technology is an efficient and specific tool for genome editing in S. miltiorrhiza. This new system presents a promising potential method to regulate plant metabolic networks and improve the quality of traditional Chinese medicinal herbs.

Salvia miltiorrhiza is a medicinal plant widely used in the treatment of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Hydrophilic phenolic acids, including rosmarinic acid (RA) and lithospermic acid B (LAB), are its primary medicinal ingredients. However, the biosynthetic pathway of RA and LAB in S. miltiorrhiza is still poorly understood. In the present study, we accomplished the isolation and characterization of a novel S. miltiorrhiza Hydroxyphenylpyruvate reductase (HPPR) gene, SmHPPR, which plays an important role in the biosynthesis of RA. SmHPPR contained a putative catalytic domain and a NAD(P)H-binding motif. The recombinant SmHPPR enzyme exhibited high HPPR activity, converting 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvic acid (pHPP) to 4-hydroxyphenyllactic acid (pHPL), and exhibited the highest affinity for substrate 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate. SmHPPR expression could be induced by various treatments, including SA, GA3, MeJA and Ag+, and the changes in SmHPPR activity were correlated well with hydrophilic phenolic acid accumulation. SmHPPR was localized in cytoplasm, most likely close to the cytosolic NADPH-dependent hydroxypyruvate reductase active in photorespiration. In addition, the transgenic S. miltiorrhiza hairy roots overexpressing SmHPPR exhibited up to 10-fold increases in the products of hydrophilic phenolic acid pathway. In conclusion, our findings provide a new insight into the synthesis of active pharmaceutical compounds at molecular level.
