In order to clarify the expression characteristics and biological functions of the sucrose phosphate phosphatase gene(SPP),and further understand the regulatory mechanism of SPP involved in sucrose biosynthesis.Herein,three TaSPP homologs,TaSPP-5A,TaSPP-5B and TaSPP-5D,located on the fifth homologous group,were cloned using the cDNA of wheat variety Jinmai 47 as the template.The physical and chemical properties,gene structure,cis-acting elements,phylogenetic tree and protein conserved domains of TaSPP were analyzed by the method of bioinformatics.The expression pattern of TaSPP was analyzed by qRT-PCR.The results showed that TaSPP-5A,TaSPP-5B and TaSPP-5D contained eight exons and seven introns.TaSPP-5A and TaSPP-5D encoded 422 amino acids,while TaSPP-5B encoded 413 amino acids.Phylogenetic analysis showed that TaSPP in wheat and its related species belonged to the same evolutionary branch with highly genetic similarity.The specific expression analysis showed that TaSPP genes were expressed in roots,stems,flag leaves,leaf sheaths,flower and seeds,whereas the higher expression levels were identified in flag leaves and stems.The expressions of TaSPP gene could be induced by ABA,PEG-6000,NaCl and IAA,indicating that TaSPP genes could play an essential role in abiotic stress tolerance in wheat.
