Cytosolic triosephosphate isomerase is a single gene in rice.


A cDNA clone encoding rice (Oryza sativa L.) cytosolic triosephosphate isomerase (TPI), an important glycolytic enzyme, was isolated and characterized. The clone (pRTPI-6) contains an open reading frame of 759 base pairs, encoding a polypeptide chain of 253 amino acid residues (M(r) 27,060). The identity of this clone was defined by its high homology (85… (More)
