Expression of-Expansin and Expansin-Like Genes in Deepwater Rice 1

  title={Expression of-Expansin and Expansin-Like Genes in Deepwater Rice 1},
  author={Yi Lee and Hans Kende},
Previously, we have studied the expression and regulation of four and 14 -expansin genes in deepwater rice (Oryza sativa). We now report on the structure, expression, and regulation of 22 additional -expansin (Os-EXP) genes, four expansin-like (Os-EXPL) genes, and one expansin-related (Os-EXPR) gene, which have recently been identified in the expressed sequence tag and genomic databases of rice. -Expansins are characterized by a series of conserved Cys residues in the N-terminal half of the… CONTINUE READING
