Isolation of a gene from Arabidopsis thaliana related to nematode feeding structures.


Using a promoter tagging approach, a gene upregulated in nematode feeding structures (NFS) of Heterodera schachtii was identified in Arabidopsis thaliana plants. Sequence analysis of the transgenic line bearing gus reporter gene and the wild-type plant revealed that the T-DNA had been inserted into the promoter of the gene, however, with transcription start… (More)
