Two genes and the corresponding cDNAs for NADH:cytochrome b5 reductase (VfCBR1A and VfCBR1B) from tung (Vernicia fordii) were cloned and characterized. Both tung genes are expressed at similar levels in various organs throughout the plant, but differ substantially in their genomic architecture. Phylogenetic comparisons of many cloned and putative CBR genes from plants and yeast revealed two general classes of sequences. The separation of the classes likely reflects differences in the… CONTINUE READING
