In this study, 266 cDNA clones were isolated from a cDNA library made from mRNA of three-week-old root nodules of Lotus japonicus, employing a degenerate oligonucleotide probe that corresponds to a conserved region of small GTP-binding (SMG) proteins. The clones were sorted into groups by cross hybridization and 3' sequencing, and 33 contigs were sequenced(More)
We report here on strategies aimed at improving the frequency of detectable recombination in plants by increasing the efficiency of selecting double-recombinants in transgenic calli. Gene targeting was approached on the Gln1 and the Pzf loci of Lotus japonicus, using Agrobacterium tumefaciens T-DNA replacement vectors. Large flanking regions, up to 22.9 kb,(More)
The importance of the symbolic value and of the product utility for a consumer's involvement in fish products was determined by applying a model to data collected in Denmark in 1999. The relative importance of these two antecedents of product involvement differed between two segments of consumers important to marketing strategies. However, the potential(More)
We have previously isolated and characterized a gene (rbcS-8B) from the wild-type species Nicotiana plumbaginifolia, encoding the small subunit of ribulose-1,5-bis-phosphate carboxylase. Using transgenic N. plumbaginifolia as a host, we found that a 5′ upstream region (-1038 to +32) of rbcS-8B contains all the sequences required for organ-specific and(More)
From nodule and seedling cDNA libraries we isolated cDNA copies of two mRNAs, derived from the genes gmrl and gmr2, encoding members of the Ypt/Rab family of small GTP-binding proteins. Two deduced protein products, GMR1 and GMR2, were found to be nearly identical differing by only four amino acids in the analysed parts. The two putative proteins are 79%(More)
Messenger RNA from young Lotus japonicus roots carrying root nodule primordia appearing after inoculation with Mesorhizobium loti bacteria were used to construct a cDNA expression library. Single-pass sequencing employing colony-polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and analysis of PCR products established a total of 2,397 new expressed sequence tags (ESTs). We(More)
Symbiotic interactions between legumes and compatible strains of rhizobia result in root nodule formation. This new plant organ provides the unique physiological environment required for symbiotic nitrogen fixation by the bacterial endosymbiont and assimilation of this nitrogen by the plant partner. We have isolated two related genes (LjNPP2C1 and LjPP2C2)(More)
Two Rac GTPase cDNAs, LjRac1 and LjRac2, were identified in the legume Lotus japonicus. Two-hybrid screening with dominant-constitutive mutations in the two Rac GTPases target three plant cDNAs, LjRacGAP1, LjRacGAP2 and LjRacGAP3, that encode putative GTPase activating proteins of Rho-GTPase subfamily members. Employing Rac antiserum, purified recombinant(More)
Low-stringency screening of a soybean root nodule cDNA library (106 recombinants screened) with a probe encoding the bovine rasGAP catalytic domain (Marshall et al., 1989) permitted the isolation of a rare cDNA that contains a 500-bp region of 68% similarity to the rasGAP cDNA. This partia1 soybean cDNA was used to isolate a full-length cDNA of 2.1 kb from(More)
