We isolated ENOD5, ENOD12 and ENOD40 homologues from Vicia sativa and studied their expression pattern during Rhizobium-induced nodule formation. Comparison of the VsENOD40 nucleotide sequence with the pea, soybean and alfalfa ENOD40 sequences showed that the sequences contain two conserved regions, called region I and region II. Comparison of all the potential open reading frames (ORFs) showed that all the five different ENOD40 clones encode a highly conserved small polypeptide of 12 or 13… CONTINUE READING
