To explore the influence of chlorophyll synthesis deficiency on the primary stem development of Artocarpus heterophyllus, the transcriptome of the primary stem of a chlorophyll deficient mutant (CDM) of A. heterophyllus was analyzed. After assembly by de novo, 295 869 Unigenes were obtained. NR, NT, Swissprot, KEGG, KOG, Pfam and GO databases were used for sequence alignment. A total of 174 291 Unigenes were annotated. After filtering the low abundance genes, 22 988 differentially expressed genes were selected. Compared with the control check (CK), there were 379 genes up-regulated in CDM and 22 609 genes down-regulated. GO classification results showed that 3712 genes were annotated and classified into three categories: molecular function, cellular component and biological process, with a total of 48 functional groups. In addition, 2080 Unigenes were involved in 19 KEGG pathways, 30 of which were involved in flavonoids biosynthesis pathways. Through transcriptome sequencing, this paper analyzed the effect of chlorophyll synthesis deficiency on the primary stem development of A. heterophyllus, which would provide data foundation for the study on the stem development of woody plants.
