Analysis of Expressed Sequence Tags of Flower Buds in Lotus japonicus

Analysis of Expressed Sequence Tags of Flower Buds in Lotus japonicus Abstract In order to study gene expression in a reproductive organ, we constructed a cDNA library of mature flower buds in Lotus japonicus , and characterized expressed sequence tags (ESTs) of 842 clones randomlyselected. The EST sequences were clustered into 718 non-redundant groups. From BLAST and FASTA search analyses of both protein and DNA databases, 58.5% of the EST groups showed significant sequence similarities to known genes. Several genes encoding these EST clones were identified as pollen-specific genes, such as pectin methylesterase, ascorbate oxidase, and polygalacturonase, and as homologous genes involved in pollen-pistil interaction. Comparison of these EST sequences with those derived from the whole plant of L. japonicus , revealed that 64.8% of EST sequences from the flower buds were not found in EST sequences of the whole plant. Taken together, the EST data from flower buds generated in this study is useful in dissecting gene expression in floral organ of L. japonicus . http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png DNA Research Oxford University Press

Abstract

Abstract In order to study gene expression in a reproductive organ, we constructed a cDNA library of mature flower buds in Lotus japonicus , and characterized expressed sequence tags (ESTs) of 842 clones randomlyselected. The EST sequences were clustered into 718 non-redundant groups. From BLAST and FASTA search analyses of both protein and DNA databases, 58.5% of the EST groups showed significant sequence similarities to known genes. Several genes encoding these EST clones were identified as pollen-specific genes, such as pectin methylesterase, ascorbate oxidase, and polygalacturonase, and as homologous genes involved in pollen-pistil interaction. Comparison of these EST sequences with those derived from the whole plant of L. japonicus , revealed that 64.8% of EST sequences from the flower buds were not found in EST sequences of the whole plant. Taken together, the EST data from flower buds generated in this study is useful in dissecting gene expression in floral organ of L. japonicus .
