RT-PCR cloning, characterization and mRNA expression analysis of a cDNA encoding a type II asparagine synthetase in common bean.


Following a RT-PCR strategy based on the design of degenerate oligonucleotides resembling conserved domains of asparagine synthetase (AS; EC, we isolated a 2 kb cDNA clone (PVAS2) from root tissue of the common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). PVAS2 encodes a protein of 584 amino acids with a predicted relative molecular mass of 65810 Da, an isoelectric… (More)
