LRP1, a gene expressed in lateral and adventitious root primordia of arabidopsis


, : LRP1, a gene expressed in lateral and adventitious root primordia of arabidopsis. Plant Cell 7(6): 735-745

We describe a gene that is expressed in lateral and adventitious root primordia of Arabidopsis. The gene was identified by expression of a transposon-borne promoterless beta-glucuronidase gene in lateral root primordia. The gene, designated LRP1 for lateral root primordium 1, and its corresponding cDNA were cloned and sequenced. The expression pattern of the gene in lateral root primordia was confirmed by in situ hybridization with LRP1 cDNA probes. The LRP1 gene encodes a novel protein. LRP1 expression is activated during the early stages of root primordium development and is turned off prior to the emergence of lateral roots from the parent root. Insertion of the transposon in the LRP1 gene disrupted its expression. To evaluate the homozygous insertion line for a mutant phenotype, several aspects of wild-type lateral root development were analyzed. A mutant phenotype has not yet been identified in the insertion line; however, there is evidence that the gene belongs to a small gene family. LRP1 provides a molecular marker to study the early stages of lateral and adventitious root primordium development.
