A plant cDNA has been cloned that encodes a DNA-binding protein displaying a nucleotide (nt) sequence specificity similar to that of the mammalian cyclic AMP response element-binding protein/activating transcription factor (CREB/ATF) family of mammalian proteins. This cDNA was cloned in Escherichia coli from a broad bean (Vicia faba) cDNA expression library using a recognition site probe. The deduced amino acid (aa) sequence of the recombinant cDNA-encoded protein, called VBP1, has a basic… CONTINUE READING
