Genomic clones and full-length cDNA for the myrosinase gene TGG3 from Arabidopsis thaliana ecotype Columbia were sequenced. The TGG3 gene was similar with the earlier described myrosinase genes and shared the conserved intron/exon splice sites but had an insertion of one nucleotide in exon 5, a deletion of two nucleotides in exon 6 and a deletion of approximately 210 nucleotides in exon 12. These mutations shifted the open reading frame in exon 5 and resulted in a truncated protein. Analysis of… CONTINUE READING
