Characterization of fruit specific cDNAs from tomato

Differential hybridization was used to screen a cDNA library made from ripe tomato fruit poly(A+)RNA. Clones were identified representing genes expressed predominantly at the unripe and/or ripe stage of the fruit development. Northern analysis was used for further characterization of the clones and in this report we describe four cDNA clones expressed at varying stages of fruit development. Three of these cDNAs were found to represent low-copy number genes and one was found to represent a gene… CONTINUE READING
