We have identified three stem abundantly expressed genes in lucerne (alfalfa, Medicago sativa). A cDNA library, constructed from lucerne stem polyadenylated RNA, was screened by differential hybridization. From this screening, cDNA clones that correspond to genes which are preferentially, or specifically, expressed in the stem were isolated. MsaS1 encodes an unidentified protein, MsaS2 encodes an S-adenosyl-homocysteine hydrolase and MsaS3 encodes an extensin-like protein. Northern blot… CONTINUE READING
