Characterization of cDNAs encoding eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4A (eIF-4A) indicates the expression of a minimum of ten related genes in tobacco leaf cells. The ten groups fall into two gene families, NeIF-4A2 and NeIF-4A3. The majority of the cDNAs exhibit significant sequence similarity to the NeIF-4A2 family at both the DNA and deduced amino acid levels. Northern analysis using specific probes indicates variable expression of four family members in various tobacco organs… CONTINUE READING
