Molecular cloning, sequence analysis and expression studies of a novelGAmyb homologous gene,hvmyb

Using a knownGAmyb gene as the probe, two fully identical clones were isolated from a barley aleurone cDNA library. Sequence analysis showed that their 5′ termini are highly homoIogous to the 3′ termini ofGAmyb (97%) and their 3′ termini share no significant homology with any myb genes. Therefore, the deduced protein may hold intact putativeGAmyb activation domain but lack the normal DNA-binding domain. Northern blot reveals thathumyb expression in barley aleurone layers is strongly up-regulated by gibberellin (GA) and down-regulated by abscisic acid (APIA). The tissue-and developmental-stage-specificity ofhvmyb was also found, which was only expressed in barley aleurone cells and dropped to non-detectable level soon after germination.
