Using cDNA Representational Difference Analysis (RDA) techniques, we isolated a cDNA that was expressed specifically in cotton fibers but not in the ovules of a fuzzless-lintless mutant (fl). We designated it as Gh-BTubL for it shares high sequence identity with known plant and yeast beta-tubulins. RT-PCR and robotic cDNA dot blot analyses indicated that the expression of Gh-BTubL was correlated with the elongation pattern of cotton fibers. In situ hybridization results verified that there was… CONTINUE READING
