We isolated a cDNA homolog of Neurospora crassa wc-2 from the basidiomycetous mushroom Lentinula edodes and termed it phrB cDNA. The deduced PHRB (313 amino acid residues) contained a PAS domain and a zinc-finger motif. Random binding-site selection analysis of the PHRB produced in Escherichia coli revealed that it bound to a 7-bp sequence with the consensus sequence 5'GATA/TTG/T/AC3'. Electrophoretic mobility-shift assay showed that it also bound to the consensus sequence 5'GATATTC3' in the… CONTINUE READING
