Genomic and cDNA clones of the acetolactate synthase (ALS) gene of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii have been isolated from a mutant, c85-20 (Hartnett et al., 1987), that is resistant to high concentrations of sulfometuron methyl (SMM) and related sulfonylurea herbicides. Comparison of the ALS gene sequences from the wild-type and the SMM resistant (SMMr) strains… CONTINUE READING
