    of seed plant, including cocoa, coffee and tomato. Phylogenetic analysis showed that the family could be partitioned into 4 subfamilies in seed plants. CPS gene was in subfamily I, 3-Methylcrotonyl-CoA carboxylase gene was in subfamily II, and subunits of Acetyl CoA Carboxylase genes were in subfamilies III and IV. In Ginkgo bilobaginkgo bilobaSubject Category: Organism Names

    , genes of Subfamilies II and IV were identified. There weren't genes of Subfamilies IV in monocotyledon. Each gene contains multiple domains, and some subfamily members were merged by gene fusion. Genes had high molecular weight and lipotropy. The results would provide gene targets and evolutionary foundation for amino acid metabolism and biosynthesis mechanism of purine alkaloid (coffeine).
