Several clones corresponding to the gene encoding NADH-dependent hydroxypyruvate reductase have been isolated from a cucumber genomic library. Restriction mapping indicates the presence of two HPR genes, hpr-A and hpr-B, in the cucumber genome. Examination of the DNAs of individual plants suggests that hpr-A and hpr-B are most likely alleles at a single locus. The sequence of a 6.7 kb genomic fragment that includes the entire transcribed region, 2.2 kb of 5′ flanking sequence, and about 0.8 kb… CONTINUE READING
