The nucleotide sequence of a HMW glutenin subunit gene located on chromosome 1A of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

Nucleic Acids Res. 1985 Oct 11;13(19):6817-32. doi: 10.1093/nar/13.19.6817.


A cloned 8.2 kb EcoRI fragment has been isolated from a genomic library of DNA derived from Triticum aestivum L. cv. Cheyenne. This fragment contains sequences related to the high molecular weight (HMW) subunits of glutenin, proteins considered to be important in determining the elastic properties of gluten. The cloned HMW subunit gene appears to be derived from chromosome 1A. The nucleotide sequence of this gene has provided new information on the structure and evolution of the HMW subunits. However, hybrid-selection translation experiments suggest that this gene is silent.
