SAG12 is a developmentally controlled, senescence-specific gene from Arabidopsis which encodes a cysteine protease. Using SAG12 as a probe, we isolated two SAG12 homologues (BnSAG12–1 and BnSAG12–2) from Brassica napus. Structural comparisons and expression studies indicate that these two genes are orthologues of SAG12. The expression patterns of BnSAG12–1 and BnSAG12–2 in Arabidopsis demonstrate that the senescence-specific regulation of this class of cysteine proteases is conserved across these species. Gel-shift assays using the essential promoter regions of SAG12, BnSAG12–1, and BnSAG12–2 show that the extent of binding of a senescence-specific, DNA-binding protein from Arabidopsis is proportional to the expression levels of these genes in Arabidopsis. Therefore, the expression levels of these genes may reflect the affinities of the senescence-specific DNA-binding protein for the promoter element.
