Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylases (PEPCs) are encoded by a small multigenic family. In order to characterise this gene family in sugarcane, seven DNA fragments displaying a high homology with grass PEPC genes were isolated using polymerase chain reaction-based cloning. A phylogenetic study revealed the existence of four main PEPC gene lineages in grasses and particularly in sugarcane. Moreover, this analysis suggests that grass C4 PEPC has likely derived from a root pre-existing isoform in an… CONTINUE READING
