The Drosophila paired gene encodes three conserved motifs: a homeodomain, paired domain and PRD (his/pro) repeat. To investigate the functional importance of the PRD repeat and paired domain, we tested deletion mutants using an ectopic expression assay in embryos. Our results suggest that the PRD repeat is not required for the in vivo regulation of the(More)
The basic region/leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factors are known to play key roles in response to abiotic stress. In this study, a bZIP gene (VqbZIP39) was isolated from grape (Vitis quinquangularis) and constitutively expressed in Arabidopsis under control of the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S promoter. The transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana plants showed(More)
