The molecular dissection of desiccation tolerance in the resurrection plant Craterostigma plantagineum led to the isolation of two dehydration-stress inducible homeo-domain-leucine zipper genes (CPHB-1 and -2). When the coding region of CPHB-1 was used as bait in the yeast two-hybrid system, the ability of CPHB-1 to form homodimers was demonstrated. The two-hybrid system was also used to isolate CPHB-2, which heterodimerises with CPHB-1. Both transcripts are inducible by dehydration in leaves… CONTINUE READING
