We have isolated and sequenced a 1400-base-pair cDNA derived from gibberellic acid-treated aleurone cell mRNA. This sequence contains an open reading frame that would code for a protein of 361 amino acids. The carboxyl-terminal two-thirds of the predicted amino acid sequence is closely related to that of the rat lysosomal thiol protease cathepsin H; the(More)
We have determined the nucleotide sequences of Amy32b, a type A alpha-amylase gene, and of the gene for aleurain, a thiol protease closely related to mammalian cathepsin H. Both are expressed in barley aleurone cells under control of the plant hormones gibberellic acid and abscisic acid, but only aleurain is expressed at high levels in other barley tissues.(More)
The structure of an insect control protein gene from Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki HD–1 was determined, and truncated forms of the gene that express a functional insecticidal protein were generated. Two of these truncated genes were incorporated into a plant expression vector for Agrobacterium–mediated transformation. Transgenic tomato plants(More)
The Cornell storage ring, CESR, is designed to collide one bunch of e+ with one bunch of e- at energies up to 8 GeV each, is used almost exclusively for research on b-quark physics (the T region, 4.5 - 5.6 GeV per beam). Here the radiation loss is less than one-quarter the design maximum - low enough to relax beam-current limitations due to total rf power,(More)
