MYB-6 gene modulates the biosynthetic pathway of anthocyanins in plants in response to cold stress. In the present study, the full length version of this gene was identified and characterized from black carrot (Daucus carota L.) through PCR amplification using specific primers. The size of amplified MYB-6 gene was found to be 903bp which was confirmed through sequencing. Post double digestion of both vector (pEGFP-C1) and Insert (MYB-6 gene), the ligated product was subjected to transformation using bacterial host (E.coli DH5É‘). Confirmation of successful transformation has revealed no growth of cells on Kanamycin enriched LB-plates, while as clear colonies were found on vector and vector-insert LB-plates. Further, analysis via PCR, restriction digestion and gene sequencing has confirmed successful cloning of carrot derived MYB-6 gene in E.coli DH5É‘. In the current study, we aimed to clone GFP tagged MYB-6 gene that could act as easy to use gene pool candidate for amelioration of cold susceptible crops and for sustainable agricultural development through various high-throughput transgenic studies. The GFP tagged MYB-6 can be used for localization studies as well.
