Abstract: All material metabolisms, energy transfer, growth and development in tea plant require the participation of enzymes, which are also of great importance for tea quality formation. β-glucosidase catalyzes the hydrolysis of tea glycoside precursors. The produced aroma substances are not only involved in plant defense reaction against diseases and pests, but also important for tea quality. The β-glucosidase of Camellia sinensis is highly similar to β-glucosidase gene family members of arabidopsis, rice and maize in expression sites, subcellular localization, protein structure and phylogenetic evolution. Under biotic and abiotic stresses, the β-glucosidase of Camellia sinensis is immediately induced in the early stage. This paper mainly focused on the bio-informatic and gene expression in tea plant studies of Camellia sinensis β-glucosidase. Meanwhile, the changes of β-glucosidase in tea processing were also reviewed.

Key words: tea plant(Camellia sinensis), β-glucosidase, bioinformatics, gene expression
