High impact information on TSB2

  • The cruciferous plant Arabidopsis thaliana has two closely related, nonallelic tryptophan synthase beta genes (TSB1 and TSB2), each containing four introns and a chloroplast leader sequence [1].
  • Expression of the two Arabidopsis thaliana genes encoding tryptophan synthase beta (TSB1 and TSB2) was investigated by gene-specific RNA blot hybridization and reporter gene analysis [2].
