Oncidium Gower Ramsey is an important ornamental orchid in Taiwan. The bright yellow floral color is due to carotenoid accumulation in the flower tissues. In order to understand the expression of phytoene desaturase (PDS), a key enzyme for the biosynthesis of β-carotene, the cDNA encoding PDS was cloned and characterized during flower development. The full length OgrPDS cDNA contains 2,273 bp, including 1,593 bp open reading frame encoding for a polypeptide of 531 amino acid residues. The 5’ and 3’ untranslated regions (UTR) were 293 and 387 bp, respectively. The deduced amino acid sequence of this PDS has 72-75 % similarity to PDS from other plant species. The relative expression level of the OgrPDS in roots and leaves was investigated. The result showed that the expression level of OgrPDS at different flower developmental stages increased gradually until stage 5 which two- and three- fold higher than leaves and roots, respectively.
