Sequence Analysis of a 40-kb Arabidopsis Thaliana Genomic Region Located at the Top of Chromosome 1

Gene. 1998 Jul 17;215(1):11-7. doi: 10.1016/s0378-1119(98)00286-8.

Abstract

As a contribution to the European Scientists Sequencing Arabidopsis (BIOTECH ESSA) project, a contig of almost 40kb has been sequenced at the extreme top of chromosome 1, around the Arabidopsis thaliana gene coding for a member of the 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate synthesis gene family. The region contains, besides the ACS1 gene itself, 10 putative genes, all new for Arabidopsis. Among these are three genes encoding kinases, a late embryogenesis-abundant protein, a MADS box-containing protein, a dehydrogenase, and a Myb-related transcription factor. In addition, six cDNAs have been sequenced that correspond to this region.
