The plant cell responds to light stress by the expression of genes encoding specific stress proteins with possible protective functions. Five genes, the mRNA levels of which increased drastically in response to light stress in mature green leaves of Arabidopsis thaliana were identified and isolated by the differential display technique. These genes were designated Lsr1-Lsr5 (light stress-regulated). Northern blot analysis demonstrated that the transcript level of Lsr1-Lsr5 increased 4- to 17… CONTINUE READING
