Leucine aminopeptidase (LAP) is induced by wounding and bacterial pathogen infection in tomato. DNA blot analysis of XbaI-digested lambdalap genomic clones demonstrated that LapA1 and LapA2 cDNAs were encoded by two different LapA genes in the tomato genome. The coding and untranslated regions of LapA1 and LapA2 mRNAs shared more than 93% identity. The deduced amino acid sequences of LapA cDNA clones and in vitro translation of LapA1 mRNA indicated that LAP-A was synthesized as a 60-kDa… CONTINUE READING
