Molecular characterization of a tomato polygalacturonase gene abundantly expressed in the upper third of pistils from opened and unopened flowers

Abstract

 A polygalacturonase (PG) gene, TPG7 (Lyces;Pga1;8), has been cloned from tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill., cv. Rutgers). RNA blot analysis reveals that TPG7 is highly expressed in pistils (ovary removed) from unopened and fully open flowers. Dissection of mature pistils demonstrated that TPG7 expression is limited to the top third (stigmatic region… (More)
