by studying pollen-specific gene expression. Male gametogenesis in flowering plants, from archesporal cells to mature pollen, involves a series of complicated events (Goldberg et al., ). A wide variety of specific gene products are involved. The differentiation and development of the male gameto-phyte of angiosperms depend on the expression ofCited by: GENE EXPRESSION deals with gene structure, gene organization, genome evolution, gene function, transcription, RNA processing, genetic code, translation, and fate of finished proteins, ribosomes, and used messenger RNAs.

A pollen-specific cDNA clone (SF17) has been isolated from a sunflower floral cDNA cDNA encodes a leucine-rich protein of amino acid residues with a molecular mass of kDa. Structural features of the predicted polypeptide include an N-terminal hydrophyllic domain, a region containing blocks of leucine-rich repeat elements (LRR) and two hydrophobic Cited by: 7.

In this situation, we thought the expression of this reference gene (β-actin) was generally constant in the tested samples. Reviewer 2 Report. Authors have demonstrated that the p promoter, 29 a short and high-activity promoter can drive pollen-specific expression of transgenes in rice and Arabidopsis transformation experiments.

SlCRK1 has pollen-specific cis -acting elements in the promoter region, and its promoter has pollen-specific activity in the homozygous transgenic plants of tomato and Arabidopsis as confirmed through histochemical GUS assays.

Moreover, the expression of SlCRK1 is not detected via stress treatment or hormone by: 2.

Pollen Gene Expression: Molecular Evidence Joseph P. Mascarenhas Department of Biological Sciences, State University of New York at Albany Albany, New York I. Introduction There has been a dramatic increase in the number of laboratories studying genes that are expressed in the male gametophyte and in the isolation and analysis of pollen-specific by: Pollen-specific expression of AtPPME1.

To examine potential tissue specificity of the At1g gene expression, we utilized the Fluorescent Tagging of Full-Length Proteins (FTFLP) technique (Tian et al., ).In this approach, which has been shown to faithfully reproduce the native level and pattern of gene expression as well as subcellular localization of the fluorescently tagged gene Cited by: Promoter sequences that direct pollen-specific expression have been previously identified in the LAT59 (for late anther tomato) gene.

Here, we show that the LAT59 sequences encoding the 5' untranslated region inhibit expression of reporter genes by > fold in transient expression experiments and up to fold after stable by: This pollen-specific expression was further confirmed by microarray data from the AtGenExpress project, in which AtAMT1;4 was reported to be specifically expressed in the tissue of stamens (ATGE_36) or mature pollen (ATGE_73), but not in other floral parts, such as sepals, petals, carpels and pedicels, or in any other Arabidopsis tissue (Schmid et al.

Duplications allow for gene functional diversification and accelerate genome evolution. Occasionally, the transposon amplification machinery reverse transcribes the mRNA of a gene, integrates it into the genome, and forms an RNA-duplicated copy: the retrogene.

Although retrogenes have been found in plants, their biology and evolution are poorly understood. Here, Cited by:   Regulation of Gene Expression: Molecular Mechanisms is intended to serve as either a textbook for graduate students or as a basic reference for laboratory personnel.

Histochemical analysis in transgenic tobacco showed that GUS activity was Cited by: Pollen-specific expression from PSI-GUS was also observed when the chimeric gene was introduced into wild type tobacco tissues in these transient expression assays (Fig. 9D). The PSI -GUS chimeric gene was unable to express P-glucuronidase activities in leaf tissues from rice and tobacco (Fig.

9C, E). All three pollen Rops fall into the same subgroup as Rop1Ps and diverge from those Rops that are not expressed in mature pollen, suggesting a coupling of the structural conservation of Rop GTPases to their gene expression in pollen. However, pollen-specific transcript accumulation for Rop1At is much higher than that for Rop3At and Rop5At.

We demonstrate that constitutive expression in leaves of the pollen-specific gene SKS13 can enhance plant defence, resulting in a reduction of M. persicae population development and also decreases the transmission of persistent by: 3.

Plants have developed a variety of mechanisms to counteract aphid attacks. They activate their defences by changing the expression of specific genes. Previously we identified an activation tag mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana on which Myzus persicae population development was reduced.
