Tobacco plants have been transformed with a T-DNA construct harboring a promoterless cytokinin-synthesizing ipt gene close to the right T-DNA border. Eighteen out of 85 transgenic clones displayed phenotypic alternations typical for an enhanced cytokinin production. Northern blot analysis confirmed the transcriptional activation of the introduced gene by(More)
The ectopic expression of knotted homologues has cytokinin-like effects on plant morphology. The functional relationship between knotted and cytokinins was investigated in cultures of leaf tissue established from tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L. cv. Havana 425) plants transformed with the maize knotted1 (kn1) gene regulated by cauliflower mosaic virus 35S RNA(More)
We describe the molecular characterization of a novel human gene on chromosome 1q23.3, termed KAT, which is highly conserved among mammals. The KAT gene spans a genomic region of approximately 1.6 kilobases and consists of 4 exons encoding a 115 amino acid protein with a molecular mass of about 12.5 kDa. The gene is expressed in several human tissues,(More)
