A large, heterogeneous, highly expressed gene family encoding oleosin-like proteins is described in the Brassicaceae. Seven related cDNA sequences were isolated from Brassica napus anther mRNA using RACE-PCR and compared with other recently described anther-specific oleosin-like genes from B. napus. The expression patterns of four representative members of this diverse gene family were analyzed by Northern blotting and in situ hybridization. In all cases, the genes were expressed specifically… CONTINUE READING
