Though polyphenol oxidase (PPO) genes from tomato and potato have been extensively studied, information about PPO genes in eggplant (Solanum melongena) is lacking. The main objective of this study is to understand the structural and functional aspects of eggplant PPO genes. Six eggplant PPO genes (SmePPO1-6) cloned by RACE and genome walking were found to be intronless and correspond to eight eggplant unigenes. Comprehensive sequence analyses indicated that the eggplant PPO genes exhibit… CONTINUE READING
