A new PR (pathogenesis-related) protein was isolated from tobacco leaves (Nicotiana tabacum cv. Samsun NN), reacting hypersensitively to tobacco mosaic virus (TMV), by zinc chelate chromatography and was therefore named Pz. Its reactivity toward several lectins indicated the presence of bound sugar residues. From the amino acid sequence of tryptic peptides, Oligonucleotide primers were derived which allowed the synthesis of Pz cDNA by PCR. Using this cDNA as probe, near full-length clones were… CONTINUE READING
