Identification of LMW Glutenin-Like Genes from Secale sylvestre Host

Identification of LMW Glutenin-Like Genes from Secale sylvestre Host Three low-molecular-weight (LMW) glutenin-like genes (designated as Ssy1, Ssy2, and Ssy3) from Secale sylvestre Host were isolated and characterized. The three genes consist of a predicted highly conservative signal peptide with 20 amino acids, a short N-terminal region with 13 amino acids, a highly variable repetitive domain and a less variable C-terminal domain. The deduced amino acid sequences of the three genes were the LMW-m type due to a methionine residue at the N-terminus. The phylogenetic analysis indicated that the prolamin genes could be perfectly clustered into five groups, including HMW-GS, LMW-GS, α/β-, γ-, and κ-prolamin. The LMW glutenin-like genes of S. sylvestre were more orthologous with the LMW-GS genes of wheat and B hordein genes of barley, which also had been confirmed by the homology analysis with the LMW-GS of wheat at Glu-A3, Glu-B3, and Glu-D3 loci. These results indicated that a chromosome locus (designated as Glu-R3) might be located on the R genome of S. sylvestre with the functions similar to the Glu-3 locus in wheat and its related species.
