We isolated two full-length cDNA clones encoding 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HMGR) from potato (Solanum tuberosum) L. tubers. The clones, designated hmg2.2 and hmg3.3, are members of previously described gene subfamilies. In addition to being induced by arachidonic acid in tubers, hmg2.2 transcript accumulates developmentally in young flowers, and in mature sepals and ovaries, whereas transcript for hmg3.3 accumulates in mature petals and anthers. Our data suggest that… CONTINUE READING
