Plants with defects in the synthesis of their epicuticular wax layer, eceriferum mutants (cer), are readily detected by the naked eye as bright green glossy plants when compared with the more glaucous normal plants. In a previous report, evidence was presented for the isolation of three lines from the Arabidopsis thaliana transformant collection (BRL5, BRL7(More)
The eceriferum3 (cer3) locus encodes one of 21 gene products known to be involved in wax biosynthesis in Arabidopsis thaliana. Mutations at these loci are readily identified by their bright, dark-green stems when compared with the more glaucous wild-type plant. Clones of a gene which encodes a 795 amino acid open reading frame have been isolated by using(More)
The number of plant mitochondrial genomes sequenced exceeds two dozen. However, for a detailed comparative study of different phylogenetic branches more plant mitochondrial genomes should be sequenced. This article presents sequencing data and comparative analysis of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of the legume Vicia faba. The size of the V. faba circular(More)
We have characterized three mutant alleles of the CER2 gene of Arabidopsis thaliana by sequencing polymerase chain reaction products of this gene generated with template DNA isolated from lines MK1, BRL7, and BRL17. Sequence analysis of the amplification product from line BRL17 revealed a 17-bp deletion in the CER2 gene. The CER2 gene of BRL7 differs from(More)
