A large gene family encoding the putative cysteine-rich defensins was discovered in Medicago truncatula. Sixteen members of the family were identified by screening a cloned seed defensin from M. sativa (Gao et al. 2000) against the Institute for Genomic Research’s (TIGR) M. truncatula gene index (MtGI version 7). Based on the comparison of their amino acid(More)
Wood-decay fungi depend upon recycling of nitrogen-containing molecules to maintain growth in nitrogen-deficient environments. One of the pools that can support growth in these organisms is the pool of free amino acids. The free amino acid (AA) composition of Schizophyllum commune mycelium grown on the surface of nitrogen-rich (M = 6.6 mM L-asparagine) and(More)
