In addition, we identified and quantified the expression of genes encoding key enzymes of the anthraquinone biosynthesis pathway, including isochorismate synthase (ICS), o-succinylbenzoate synthase (OSBS), o-succinylbenzoate ligase (OSBL), and isopentenyl diphosphate isomerase (IPPi).

The anthraquinonealizarin, which bears a strong structural resemblance to emodin and itsderivatives (), are biosynthesizedvia the shikimic acid pathway ().
