  • We have isolated a polyubiquitin cDNA from the modified desiccation-tolerant grass Sporobolus stapfianus. This cDNA, along with a commercially available polyclonal ubiquitin antibody, was used to characterize desiccation/rehydrated-associated changes in ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation in S. stapfianus and the fully desiccation-tolerant moss Tortula ruralis. Northern analysis demonstrated that in S. stapfianus leaves two ubiquitin transcripts, of ca. 1.4 and 1.2 kb, accumulated above… CONTINUE READING
