An abundant, pistil-specific basic protein has been purified and characterized from potato (Solanum tuberosum L.). A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) probe was generated for the corresponding gene using oligonucleotides based on internal peptide sequences of the protein, and the PCR probe was further employed to isolate cDNA and genomic clones. The sequence(More)
The promoter of the potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) SK2 gene, encoding a pistil-specific basic endochitinase, was cloned. Various fragments of the SK2-promoter, from 1 kb down to 0.23 kb in length, were fused to the GUS reporter gene. Chimaeric SK2 promoter-GUS fusion constructs were transformed into potato by Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated(More)
The Drosophila gene argos encodes a diffusible protein that acts as a negative regulator of cell fate decisions. To define interacting gene products, we performed a genetic analysis of argos, which suggests the presence of several partially redundant gene functions in its immediate vicinity at the chromosomal position 73A. Dose titration experiments have(More)
