Differential regulation of an auxin-producing nitrilase gene family in Arabidopsis thaliana.


Nitrilases (nitrile aminohydrolase, EC convert nitriles to carboxylic acids. We report the cloning, characterization, and expression patterns of four Arabidopsis thaliana nitrilase genes (NIT1-4), one of which was previously described [Bartling, D., Seedorf, M., Mithöfer, A. & Weiler, E. W. (1992) Eur. J. Biochem. 205, 417-424]. The nitrilase genes… (More)
