The nicotianamine-deficient mutant chloronerva resembles phenotypically an Fe-deficient plant despite the high accumulation of Fe in the leaves, whereas if suffers from Cu deficiency in the shoot. Two-dimensional electrophoretic separation of proteins from root tips and leaves of wild-type Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. cv Bonner Beste and the mutant grown(More)
Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells strain D422, which has one copy of the adenine phosphoribosyl transferase (APRT) gene, were permeabilized by electroporation and treated with 5-methyl deoxycytidine triphosphate. Cells with a silenced APRT gene were selected on 2, 6-diaminopurine. Colonies were isolated and shown to be reactivated to APRT+ by 5-aza-cytidine(More)
The tomato mutant chloronerva exhibits a defect in iron-uptake regulation. Despite high apoplastic and symplastic iron concentrations, the mutant shows characteristic symptoms of iron deficiency. Using a subtractive-hybridisation approach, we have screened for cDNA clones specific for genes with altered expression in wild-type versus mutant root tissue.(More)
Three wheat sequences, shown to be homologous to pollen allergen encoding, DNA replication regulating, and DNA (cytosine-5)-methyltransferase genes were localized on chromosomes using nullisomic-tetrasomic wheat ('Chinese Spring') and wheat-rye ('Chinese Spring'/'Imperial') addition lines. Whereas the loci for the pollen allergen encoding sequence (Tri a(More)
To isolate genes specifically expressed at the initiation of plant embryo development we have applied a sensitive subtractive hybridization technique for three isogenic wheat lines of the so-called 'Salmon system' with either zygotic or autonomous embryo development. Here we present a gene sequence showing a high homology to grass pollen allergens of type(More)
The differential display technique was originally developed for the isolation of differentially expressed genes from eukaryotic tissues. We have adapted this technique for the isolation of cDNA markers from specific regions of the tomato genome. For this purpose, differential display was performed on RNA extracted from leaf tissue of nearly isogenic lines(More)
The 'Salmon system' consists of isogenic but alloplasmic wheat lines with either sexual or autonomous embryo development. Using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis these lines have been screened for proteins potentially involved in the initiation of parthenogenesis. A temporally altered expression of the polypeptide 'P 115.1' in the sexual and(More)
