The genome of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana has been sequenced by an international collaboration, The Arabidopsis Genome Initiative. Here we report the complete sequence of chromosome 5. This chromosome is 26 megabases long; it is the second largest Arabidopsis chromosome and represents 21% of the sequenced regions of the genome. The sequence of(More)
X-chromosome linked inhibitor of apoptosis, XIAP, is cellular caspase inhibitor and a key regulator of apoptosis. We and others have previously shown that XIAP expression is regulated primarily at the level of protein synthesis; the 5' untranslated region (UTR) of XIAP mRNA contains an Internal Ribosome Entry Site (IRES) that supports cap-independent(More)
As an approach to isolate novel cereal promoters, promoterless uidA constructs and particle bombardment were used to transform tritordeum. Five of eight transgenic lines containing uidA sequences showed evidence of promoter tagging. Expression of uidA was detected in four lines as: constitutive expression, expression in short cells of the epidermis of the(More)
