LHY is the key gene of biological clock, we designed the corresponding primers which was based on soybean LHY candidate genes, we obtained the GmLHY2 gene by RT-PCR method to amplify the LHY genes in soybean cultivars. Its ORF span was 2250 bp, encoding was 749 amino acids. Then the GmLHY2 gene was built into PGEX expression vector to express the fusion protein of GST-GmLHY2, the prokaryotic expression condition of GST-GmLHY2 fusion protein was also explored. The result indicated that, with the help of comparative genomics between model plants and other plants, which can be more predictable and targeted in the study of other species.
