Experiments conducted in vitro using the electrophoretic mobility shift assay have shown that a single region of the extensin gene of carrot (Daucus carota L.) interacts with a protein factor designated Extensin Gene Binding Factor-1 (EGBF-1) present in nuclear extracts obtained from carrot roots. This interaction is sequence-specific as judged by the failure of other plant gene sequences to compete with the extensin gene for EGBF-1 binding. The EGBF-1 activity is organspecific, not being… CONTINUE READING
