Isolation and characterization of a cDNA-clone coding for potato type B phytochrome


We have isolated and sequenced overlapping genomic and cDNA clones encoding the apoprotein of a potato phytochrome. Based on the deduced amino acid sequence, which shows 77% identity to the Arabidopsis phyB and 50% identity to the potato phyA open reading frame, we suggest that these clones encode phyB phytochrome. However, the size of the deduced open… (More)
