  • We report here the isolation and nucleotide sequence of tomato cDNA and genomic clones encoding a ubiquitin extension protein homologous to the yeast gene ubi3. Sites similar to upstream activating sites commonly found in the promoters of yeast ribosomal genes were observed in the tomato promoter. The tomato ubi3 promoter also contained elements found in the rbcS promoter from pea. The transcription initiation site was determined to occur 66 bp upstream of the initiating Met. RFLP mapping… CONTINUE READING
