Functional analysis of TaDi19A, a salt-responsive gene in wheat.

A salinity stress upregulated expressed sequence tag (EST) was selected from a suppression subtractive hybridization cDNA library, constructed from the salinity-tolerant wheat cultivar Shanrong No. 3. Sequence analysis showed that the corresponding gene (named TaDi19A) belonged to the Di19 family. TaDi19A was constitutively expressed in both the root and… CONTINUE READING
