A chitinase cDNA clone (designated CAChi2) was isolated from the cDNA library of pepper leaves infected with Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria. The 1004-bp full-length CAChi2 cDNA encodes a basic chitinase with an N-terminal 24 amino acid signal peptide followed by a catalytic region. An analysis of its sequence indicates that CAChi2 is a class II chitinase, because it does not have chitin-binding domain and C-terminal extension sequences. The deduced amino acid sequence of CAChi2 has a… CONTINUE READING
