The non-expressor of pathogenesis-related genes 1 (NPR1) is an essential positive regulator of salicylic acid (SA)-induced pathogenesis-related (PR) gene expression and systemic acquired resistance (SAR). Two novel full length NPR1-like genes; MNPR1A and MNPR1B, were isolated from banana by application of the PCR and rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) techniques. The two identified MNPR1 sequences differed greatly in their expression profile using quantitative real time (qRT)-PCR following… CONTINUE READING
