Characterization and sequence analysis of a developmentally regulated putative cell wall protein gene isolated from soybean.

A cDNA clone, pTU04, which hybridizes to two different sizes of mRNA on Northern blots was isolated from soybean suspension culture cell poly(A) RNA. Northern analysis reveals that meristematic tissue produces a 1050-nucleotide mRNA while quiescent mature cells produce primarily a 1220-nucleotide mRNA homologous to pTU04. The cDNA and its corresponding… (More)
