  • Abstract The nuclear gene SAMT—salicylic acid methyltransferase—is a novel phylogenetic marker that was isolated using RT-PCR in order to estimate intergeneric relationships within the Solanaceae. SAMT catalyzes the formation of the volatile compound methyl salicylate, which is an important secondary metabolite for both pathogen defense and floral fragrance in this family. Relationships inferred with SAMT cDNA sequences are mostly congruent with previous cpDNA estimates, which not only… CONTINUE READING
