Areca catechu L. is an important economic crop in Hainan, China, the leaf yellowing has become increasingly serious, which is a major obstacle to the sustainable and healthy development of the areca industry. According to field research, the symptoms of leaf yellowing mainly included specific yellowing from 1/4 of leaf margin and whole leaf yellowing. In this study, 440 differentially co-expressed genes were screened in the specific leaf yellowing group by transcriptome sequencing, which were mainly concentrated in secondary metabolic pathways, hormone signal transduction pathways and energy metabolism pathways. This study explored the molecular mechanism of specific etiolation of areca leaves under different stresses and provided theoretical basis for the comprehensive prevention and control of areca plam yellowing disease.

Key words: Areca catechu L., leaf yellowing, transcriptome sequencing
