Analyses of genomic DNA and clones indicate that the pyruvate, orthophosphate dikinase (PPDK; ATP: pyruvate, orthophosphate phosphotransferase, EC 2.7.9.1) gene family of maize (Zea mays L. subsp. mays, line B73) contains two members. Restriction site and DNA sequence comparisons between PPDK genomic and leaf cDNA clones have revealed which gene encodes the isozyme involved in C4 photosynthesis. The region flanking the 5' end of this gene contains two 30-base-pair (bp) repetitive elements that… CONTINUE READING
