  • GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase (GMPase: EC 2.7.7.22) plays a crucial role in the synthesis of l-ascorbate (AsA) and the consequent detoxification of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Herein, a GMPase (accession ID DQ449030) was identified and cloned from tomato. The full-length cDNA sequence of this gene contains 1,498 bp nucleotides encoding a putative protein with 361 amino acid residues of approximate molecular weight 43 kDa. Northern blot analysis revealed that the GMPase was expressed in all… CONTINUE READING
