Sporamin and β-amylase are two major proteins of tuberous roots of sweet potato, and expression of genes coding for sporamin and β-amylase is induced concomitantly in leaves with the petioles attached by exogenous supply of sucrose or polygalacturonic acid. We have used a DNase I footprinting assay to characterize nuclear factors that bind to the 5′-upstream regions of gSPO-A1, gSPO-B1 and gβ-Amy genes that encode A-type sporamin, B-type sporamin and the subunit of β-amylase, respectively… CONTINUE READING
