|Title:||Gene expression profiling in maize roots under aluminum stress|
|Abstract:||To investigate the molecular mechanisms of Al toxicity, cross-species cDNA array approach was employed to identify expressed sequence tags (ESTs) regulated by Al stress in root tips of Al-tolerant maize (Zea mays) genotype Cat100-6 and Al-sensitive genotype S1587-17. Due to the high degree of conservation observed between sugarcane and maize, we have analyzed the expression profiling of maize genes using 2 304 sugarcane (ESTs) obtained from different libraries. We have identified 85 ESTs in Al stressed maize root tips with significantly altered expression. Among the up-regulated ESTs, we have found genes encoding previously identified proteins induced by Al stress, such as phenyl ammonia-lyase, chitinase, Bowman-Birk proteinase inhibitor, and wali7. In addition, several novel genes up-and down-regulated by Al stress were identified in both genotypes.|
