Phospholipase D, a major lipid-degrading enzyme in plants, was studied in two cultivars of Vigna unguiculata L.Walp, differing in their tolerance to drought (cv. EPACE-1, drought-tolerant, and cv.(More)
Four cultivars of related species, common bean and cowpea, which exhibit different degrees of drought resistance, were submitted to water stress by withholding irrigation. Drought induced an increase(More)
Two cDNAs encoding putative phosphatidate phosphatases (PAPs) designated VuPAP-alpha and VuPAP-beta were cloned in cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L.) leaves. The predicted proteins have six(More)
