Programmed cell death (PCD) is a highly conserved cellular suicide process important in developmental processes and elimination of damaged cells upon environmental stresses. Among the important regulators of PCD, much interest has been centered on BCL2-associated x protein (BAX) as the pro-PCD factor. On the other hand, BAX inhibitor-1 (BI-1) has been(More)
Capsicum annuum RING Zinc Finger Protein 1 (CaRZFP1) gene is a novel C3HC4-type RING zinc finger protein gene which was previously isolated from a cDNA library for hot pepper plants treated of heat-shock. The CaRZFP1 was inducible to diverse environmental stresses in hot pepper plants. We introduced the CaRZFP1 into the Wisconsin 38 cultivar of tobacco(More)
A cDNA clone,CaRZFPI, was isolated from high temperature-stressed hot pepper plants. This gene contains an open reading frame (ORF) encoding a RING zinc finger protein of 219 amino acids. Our C3HC4 type protein has the C-X2-C-X11-C-X1-H-X2-C-X2-C-X13-C-X2-C sequence motif. Phylogenetic analysis based on the deduced amino acid sequence ofCaRZFP1 cDNA(More)
