Lipid transfer protein genes of loblolly pine are members of a complex gene family

Plant Mol Biol. 1994 Nov;26(4):1213-6. doi: 10.1007/BF00040702.


A loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) cDNA with properties of a nonspecific lipid transfer protein (nsltp) is reported. In contrast to simple family structures reported for a variety of angiosperm nsltp genes, the putative pine nsltp gene is a member of a complex family.
