High impact information on UBQ3

  • The Ubq3 gene encodes the ubiquitin protein that is attached to proteins destined for degradation [1].
  • Six genes (MEB5.2, PyroA, Ubq3, Lhcb6, F5D21.10 and the gene for an RNA polymerase II subunit) were tested for stress specific gene regulation on northern blots with RNA from plants exposed to low dose UV-B radiation, ozone or wounding [1].
