Title: Thermotolerance-related Genes in Agaricus bisporus
Authors: Z. Wang, L. Chen, M. Chen, J. Liao, J. Dong and S. Song
Reverse transcription-random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis was used to isolate several thermotolerance-related DNA fragments in Agaricus bisporus. One fragment was cloned and sequenced and corresponded to a portion of the tRNAVal gene. Using a differential display approach, several other thermotolerance-related DNA fragments were cloned and sequenced. The results indicated that one fragment was an unreported gene, a second fragment shared high homology in amino acid sequence with the partial karyopherin docking complex of the nuclear pore complex gene in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and a third fragment had amino acid sequence homology with the vitamin-K-dependent protein S.Please login to download the PDF for this proceeding.
