Ultraviolet-damaged DNA binding protein (UV-DDB) is an important factor involved in DNA repair. To study the role of UV-DDB, we attempted to obtain the cDNA and the protein of a plant UV-DDB. We succeeded in isolating both genes for UV-DDB subunits from rice (Oryza sativa cv. Nipponbare), designated as OsUV-DDB1 and OsUV-DDB2. OsUV-DDB2 (65 kDa) was much larger than human UV-DDB2, but immunoprecipitation and gel mobility shift assay suggested that OsUV-DDB2 is a plant counterpart of UV-DDB2… CONTINUE READING
