Cloning and expression of multiple metallothioneins from hybrid poplar

Abstract

• In an effort to understand processes that are related to heavy metal sequestration, we characterized six metallothionein genes ( PtdMTs ) in the hybrid cottonwood, Populus trichocarpa × deltoides . • cDNA microarrays and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction were used to examine PtdMT expression in poplar tissues. They displayed differential… (More)
