The expression of phytohemagglutinin genes in Phaseolus vulgaris is associated with organ-specific DNA methylation patterns

Abstract

Using methylation sensitive restriction enzymes and DNA gel blot analyses, we have examined DNA methylation patterns at the chromosomal locus harboring the two phytohemagglutinin genes of Phaseolus vulgaris. In cotyledons, where the genes are highly expressed, several sites have become undermethylated, whereas the methylation status of other sites remains… (More)
