We have characterized the beta-tubulin gene family of Arabidopsis thaliana. Five distinct genes were cloned and analyzed by restriction enzyme mapping and cross-hybridization studies. Three of the genes appear to be dispersed, whereas two others are linked within 1.5 kb of one another. The two linked genes are closely related and appear to have resulted from a fairly recent duplication. The three dispersed genes do not cross-hybridize to one another or to the two linked genes under highly… CONTINUE READING
