The polymorphic barley (Hordeum vulgare) Mla locus harbors allelic race-specific resistance (R) genes to the powdery mildew fungus Blumeria graminis f sp hordei. The highly sequence-related MLA proteins contain an N-terminal coiled-coil structure, a central nucleotide binding (NB) site, a Leu-rich repeat (LRR) region, and a C-terminal non-LRR region.

We have isolated PcGA3ox1, a cDNA clone from developing runner bean (Phaseolus coccineus) seeds that shows significant amino acid homology with the gibberellin (GA) 3-oxidases. A recombinant fusion protein of PcGA3ox1 converted GA20 and GA9 to GA1 and GA4, respectively. In situ hybridization results showed that transcripts of this gene accumulate(More)
