CysteineEndopeptidase from Vignamungo : Gene Structure and Expression


A cysteine endopeptidase (SH-EP) is involved in the degradation of storage globulin in cotyledons of germinating seeds of Vigna mungo. Using SH-EP cDNA as a probe, we isolated two oyerlapping genomic clones for SH-EP from a VL mungo genomic library, The results of Southern blot analysis of the nuclear DNA suggested that there is a single gene for SH-EP. The… (More)
