We present the first cloning and study of glutamine synthetase (GS) genes in wheat ( Triticum aestivum L.). Based on sequence analysis, phylogenetic studies and mapping data, ten GS sequences were classified into four sub-families: GS2 ( a , b and c ), GS1 ( a , b and c ), GSr ( 1 and 2 ) and GSe...
We analyzed the Arabidopsis thaliana genome sequence to detect Late Embryogenesis Abundant (LEA) protein genes, using as reference sequences proteins related to LEAs previously described in cotton or which present similar characteristics. We selected 50 genes representing nine groups. Most of the...
Sugars regulate important processes and affect the expression of many genes in plants. Characterization of Arabidopsis ( Arabidopsis thaliana ) mutants with altered sugar sensitivity revealed the function of abscisic acid (ABA) signalling in sugar responses. However, the exact interaction between...
