The EMB 506 gene of Arabidopsis, required for the normal development of the embryo beyond the globular stage, has been cloned. The gene encodes a protein of predicted size 35 kDa that contains five ankyrin (ANK) repeats within the C terminal moiety. ANK repeats are conserved domains of 33 amino acids involved in specific recognition of protein partners. The EMB 506 protein was detected at different stages of silique development but accumulated preferentially in the mature cauline leaves. The… CONTINUE READING
