A recently isolated cDNA clone of tobacco (Nicofiana fabacum L.) lipoxygenase (LOX) was used to study LOX gene expression in tobacco cell-suspension cultures and intact plants in response to infection with Pbyfopbfbora parasitica nicotianae (Ppn). Southern blot analysis of tobacco DNA indicated that only a small number of LOX genes hybridize to this probe. These genes were not constitutively expressed to a detectable leve1 in control cells and healthy plants. In contrast, a rapid and transient… CONTINUE READING
